Round 2

In the May 4 issue, Federal Computer Week incorrectly reported on the Labor Department's resources to fix computers for the Year 2000 problem. The article should have reported that Year 2000 work done by Labor's Inspector General's Office has been "limited by resource constraints." In the same article, FCW incorrectly characterized the amount of money Labor has left to spend on helping states make Year 2000 fixes in unemployment systems. The article should have reported that Labor can spend $160 million in fiscal 1998 and $40 million in fiscal 1999.
