The Computing Services and Software Association (CSSA) has accused the UK government of ?damaging? the momentum of the Year 2000 awareness campaign.p> Among evidence presented today to the House of Commons Science & Technology Select Committee enquiry into the Year 2000, the two groups demanded immediate attention and leadership from Tony Blair, and suggested the government is still underestimating the problem.
Rob Wirszycz, head of the CSSA, said: ?The work of Taskforce 2000 has been damaged by the change of support strategy by the government. The announcement of Action 2000 has reduced the campaign?s momentum because it introduced an organisation that has to begin from scratch.?
The government established Action 2000 because it believed awareness had been raised and the next step to mobilise corporates into action would be more effectively done by another group. But Wirszycz believes Taskforce 2000 had already begun shifting its activities to a broader base. ?Clearly Taskforce 2000 has a great deal more work to do and must continue to enlighten government and business about this issue in a free and independent way,? he said.
