OMB saddles feds with state Y2K data links : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

relevant quote: "In the memo to agency heads, OMB Director Jacob Lew will ask federal agencies to list the social services programs that fall under their responsibility and then meet with state officials to conduct testing and develop contingency plans and according to Kathy Adams, assistant deputy commissioner for systems at the Social Security Administration and chairwoman of the Year 2000 Committee of the CIO Council.

Additionally, federal agencies will be required to produce quarterly reports on their progress with states, providing updates on their testing schedules and contingency plans, Adams said."

is it just me or does this sound a whole lot like "we're from the federal government and we're here to help you!" ?
