      Pentagon set to meet deadline for reporting on
      technology purchases

      From National Journal's Technology Daily

      The Defense Department is on track to meet a congressionally
mandated deadline
      of March 15 for modifying its data-collection systems on purchases
of information
      technology products and services, according to a General
Accounting Office report
      released Tuesday.

      Under the fiscal 2001 defense authorization act, Defense was
directed to collect
      specific procurement data beginning Oct. 30, 2000. The department
was planning
      to spend $20.3 billion on information technology in fiscal 2001,
GAO said in its
      report, "Defense Acquisition: Collection and Reporting of
Information Technology
      Purchases" (GAO-02-331).

      Defense now collects IT procurement data centrally, and both
military services and
      civilian agencies began collecting the mandated data on Oct. 1,
2001, GAO said.

      The data includes which products or services are purchased and for
how much,
      whether they are commercial items, and how the purchase was
completed. It also
      will show how competitive the process was and the type of business
from which the
      purchase was made.
