Government Accountability Office, Information Technology: Tools and Techniques for Improving the Efficiency of Federal Automatic Data Processing Operation (B-115369) (June 3, 1974) (full-text).

Overview Edit

An earlier GAO report[1] described some tools and techniques that could be used for reducing computer operating costs through identifying ways to increase operational efficiency. These tools and techniques were relatively new, and the opportunity for their increased use by Government agencies was extensive.

This report reviewed 43 computer installations in industry and government to identify additional uses of these and other techniques. The Federal Government has thousands of computers with annual operating costs estimated at several billion dollars; consequently, increased efficiency can produce worthwhile savings.
