Reviews DoDs plans to consolidate, out source, and modernize its computer center (CC) operations and assesses whether DoD has a framework in place for making and executing these decisions. DoD and the military services have consolidated a number of their CC in recent years and contracted with the private sector for info. processing services that were previously performed in-house. These actions were part of an effort to find better and less costly ways of meeting DoD info. processing needs. There can be further consolidations since 40% of DoDs CC still fall below government wide minimum processing capacity targets.
