The US Federal Aviation Administration, the State Department and the Agency for International Development have been singled out as failing to put adequate Y2K strategies into place.
The Health and Human Services and the departments of Agriculture and Defence also got a black mark for lagging behind in their Y2K preparations in a congressional report by the US House Subcommittee on government management, information and technology.
"Although the problem of converting these systems to the Year 2000 was recognised long ago, its lack of attention - inside and outside the federal government - has turned this manageable problem into a potential crisis," said Stephen Horn, the subcommittee's chairman,at a press briefing.
Gold stars went to The Social Security Administration and the Nuclear Regulatory Commission for pushing ahead with their Y2K compliancy strategies.
Despite a couple of high Y2K achievers, the report said that that the overall grade for the US federal government was an unacceptable ?C-plus? on its report card.
