Goverment's Contingency Planning...Can someone explain this one to me? : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

This is a snippet from a memo Jacob Lew to selected agency heads, issued in May of this year:

"We expect that agencies will assume for purposes of preparing their business continuity and contingency plans that electric power, natural gas, water service, waste treatment, financial services, transportation, public voice and data communications, the Internet, mail service, and the mass media will be available domestically, although it is possible that there will be localized disruptions in some areas".

Now if any of the above-mentioned services fail, and in DC this is highly likely, does this mean that they have no plans on how to deal with these failures?

Someone 'splain this, please.
