Comment: 

FEDERAL COMPUTER WEEK (Jan. 5) warns that without funding, agencies will not be compliant in 2000. It's time for contingency planning.

Many agencies already know that there is simply not enough money and not enough time to get all agency systems up and running by 2000. Congress and OMB should make a joint New Year's resolution this year to add a dose of reality to the Year 2000 discussion. It is time to do away with the report cards, false deadlines and unrealistic expectations. Rather, OMB should use the remaining 700-plus days to push agencies to complete assessments, prioritize systems fixes and redirect funding and manpower. Another worthwhile endeavor would be to prepare some disaster-recovery plans for those agencies that simply run out of time.
