- Full Report:
The Civil Service Commission (CSC) is becoming increasingly reliant on automatic data processing (ADP) support to carry out its missions.
Weaknesses in CSC ADP management were noted in policy matters, program documentation, security planning, and contingency planning. CSC or its successor should: (1) establish a comprehensive, uniform ADP policy; (2) expand the current program documentation standard to include all ADP production programs; and (3) strengthen ADP security planning.
