FAA: All systems Y2K-compliant

The Federal Aviation Administration today announced that all of its computer systems are Year 2000-compliant, including air traffic control systems.

The agency said Science Applications International Corp. recently finished independently verifying and validating the FAA's Year 2000 fixes. However, while the independent verification and validation process extended into July, FAA officials said they had met their publicly stated goal of having its systems compliant by June 30.

FAA Administrator Jane Garvey said in a statement that the agency's Year 2000 program "will serve as a model for a new way of doing business for all future FAA management programs."

The FAA plans to continue to test its systems and contingency plans up to Dec. 31 and through leap day on Feb. 29, 2000.
