This document was OMB's first quarterly report based on agencies' reports to the White House. It shows that 17% of the necessary repair work has been done. Of the systems inventory, more than 15% will be retired or replaced altogether, instead of being repaired. The total inventory of 7,649 does not include 29,139 software modules reported by the Social Security Administration.
The report calls the progress as of May 15, 1997 "a good start" but notes pointedly that 5,430 essential systems remain to be fixed. It says the government-wide cost estimate continues to climb as agencies get a better handle on the problem.
