NSF Y2K Compliant!

The National Science Foundation has completed validation of its
mission-critical systems as Year 2000 compliant in advance of the
government-wide deadline. As of February 1999, all of these systems were
validated as being Y2K compliant. Of the 17 mission-critical systems at
NSF, 10 were repaired and 7 were replaced. (For example, NSF now has a
new proposal and reviewer system and a new personnel system-replacements
that were planned as part of modernization, but also met the Y2K
compliance deadlines.) NSF will spend the remainder of 1999 refining its
Y2K contingency plans, and testing hardware and software. [Mary Hanson]
