California's Department of Information Technology last week hired San Diego Data Processing Corp. to provide Year 2000 compliance services. The contract, valued at $500,000, is the first of three state consulting contracts SDDPC (www.sddpc.org) has in the works.
After competing with several private corporations for the work, the corporation -- a non-profit 'public benefit' organization started in 1979 -- won the contract with California based on its work converting 4 million lines of code for the City of San Diego.
"This relationship with SDDPC is a good example of how state and local governments can interface on selected projects," said Eli Cortez, California's chief information officer. SDDPC in March retained a spot on the California Multiple Awards Schedule program.
