Everything with Government I.T. is "Easier said than done"
Easy to say it, "you  could save money by using the same I.T. systems for the C.I.A. and the Dept. of Health (DHHS)".... also use the same systems for the F.T.C., the S.E.C., the Justice Dept., and the Atomic Energy Commision....easy, no problem........be sure to use the same system for the F.C.C., so we can all get irradiated via our T.V. sets......
