    Recommendations for Executive Action

    Recommendation: To provide for orderly and productive use of COM equipment, the General Services Administration (GSA) should: (1) inform federal managers of the benefits of using COM; (2) suggest that agencies investigate whether COM could increase productivity and lower the cost of information systems; and (3) encourage federal agencies to share existing COM equipment, especially in areas where federal agencies are concentrated. GAO believes it will be helpful to congressional committees considering agency requests for additional funds to augment ADP systems. Committees having oversight responsibility for GSA may be interested in the effectiveness of GSA's efforts to encourage more COM use.

    Recommendation: To insure that adequate documentation is prepared, when the NBS standards become available, the General Services Administration should issue guidance to agencies that use computers specifying that the agency head assign responsibility to an appropriate official for periodically reviewing computer systems. These reviews should insure that the computer systems have been documented properly in accordance with the standards established by NBS.
