In her otherwise happy-face July 10 testimony to two House subcommittees, Year 2000 Public Relations flak (oops -- "Administrator, Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, Office of Management and Budget") Sally Katzen (a lawyer) made this stunning admission:
"While the agencies have made a good start, much work remains to be done. Only 21 percent of the government's mission-critical systems are reported as already compliant. An additional 8 percent are being retired and need not be fixed. That leaves 71 percent of the 7,649 mission-critical systems reported that must be repaired or replaced" (p. 5).
