re: Federal Agencies Faulted For Unnecessary IT Spending
Put into perspective of the $80 billion the govt spends on IT, $321 million is still pretty small change -- and less than what it used to be. GAO is still to be credited for reporting this because what show's above the water is probably a lot bigger beneath the surface.
