Overview Edit

The President's Council on Year 2000 Conversion was established on February 4, 1998, by Executive Order 13073 to address the Year 2000 (Y2K) computer problem, which threatened to impact computer systems in both the governmental and private sectors.

The Council’s formal charge was to coordinate the federal government’s overall Year 2000 activities. These activities fell into three areas: ensuring that Federal systems were ready for the date change; coordinating Y2K efforts with interface partners for important Federal services, primarily States; and promoting action on the Y2K problem among businesses and other governments — domestically and internationally — whose failures could have an adverse effect on the American people.

On March 29, 2000, the Council issued its final report — The Journey to Y2K: Final Report of the President's Council on Year 2000 Conversion. The Council was ended on March 31, 2000.
