GAO, Observations on Software Centers (GAO-094677) (Sept. 27, 1977) (not available online).
GAO conducted a comprehensive research study on the state-of-the-art of computer-aided building design. As part of the study, GAO visited several software centers in the United States and Europe. There is a great deal of activity occurring in Europe relating to the use of computers and the development of centers to facilitate the transfer of computer software. Unless attention is paid to the European effort, the United States will be paying foreign firms for systems and services.
