On the allocation of resources necessary to complete a y2k repair task, see the California White Paper.

A new poll of Fortune 500 information technology (IT) officers indicates that only one in six of the corporations surveyed -- 16 percent -- have begun implementing a full-fledged strategy to achieve Year 2000 compliance, and that only a quarter -- 24 percent -- have a detailed plan in place.

The tracking poll of 128 IT directors and managers in 14 industries -- which periodically measures Year 2000 preparedness -- was conducted in August by Rubin Systems Inc. for Cap Gemini America, a market leader in Year 2000 services.
