The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) fears that its desktop PCs will fail to meet the Year 2000 deadline.
The agency is confident that its mainframes and software will be Y2K compliant in good time, but John Yost, director of the IRS? Year 2000 project, said that the software needed to fix the date on the 130,000 PCs is not available.
A House of Representatives aide has estimated that 40 per cent of the Treasury Department?s computers and software will not be ready, and that the IRS is lagging even further behind.
The agency admitted to not having a contingency plan. If problems occur when 2000 arrives, Yost said: ?We would just turn the problem systems off and run in a more limited environment.?
