All conversion or replacement activity is performed to the extent possible in accordance with the General Accounting Office (GAO) conversion model outlined in the GAO's guidance document titled "Year 2000 Computing Crisis: An Assessment Guide” dated September 1997. The conversion or replacement activity should follow all appropriate phases in the GAO guide.

Year 2000 Program activities are given top priority. All new system development activity should be assigned lesser priority unless it replaces a non-compliant application or is needed to fulfill lega statutory, or mission-critical office requirements. Similarly, existing system modification/enhancement activity should be limited to production problems, or to fulfill legal, statutory, or mission-critical office requirements.

Organizations are provided adequate resources to meet deadlines, including interdepartmental reassignment of resources or contracting out if necessary.

New information technology productivity tools are acquired to facilitate and expedite the conversion, replacement, and testing activities, if applicable.

Each organization establishes a validation phase testing group(s) which is different than the one(s) that performed the renovation, including any work that was contracted out; and that the validation groups certify applications for year 2000 compliance.

All GPO organizations providing information processing services to various customer entities shall develop software bridges to accommodate non-compliant data exchanges with their external customer entities.

Responsibilities.—The GPO Year 2000 Program will be administered through a closely coordinated network of management and supervisory officials, with the Director of the Policy Coordination Staff serving as the Year 2000 Program Manager. The principal management official responsible for overall GPO Year 2000 Program is the Deputy Public Printer. Policy guidance provided by the Deputy Public Printer through the Year 2000 Program Management Office, GPO's executive management, managers in core business areas, and personnel involved in the year 2000 conversion/replacement effort will work together in harmony and bring GPO's Year 2000 Program to a successful conclusion by October 1, 1999.
