Bush Wants $60B for 2004 Fed IT Budget
January 16, 2003 9:34 AM   Subscribe

Bush Wants $60B for 2004 Fed IT Budget. It's the only area aside from defense that is going to have an increase in spending when Bush releases his budget on 2/3. Mitchell E. Daniels said federal IT projects contain "tons of overlap and redundancies" and "far too many plans for which we do not have good business cases." And here I thought that was just the proper definition of our government.

So do they want linux or will they trust Microsoft to open the source to them?

but wait; isnt the real role of govt anymore to juice the stock market? what better way to get Cisco back to $80 than to have the govt overspend on IT.

As much as I hate Bush, a some of this money may be coming my way. Maybe now my employer will spring for the tuition reimbursement they've been promising me...

80 billion on IT?

I think that is just enough to get Windows XP Home edition on every govit computer.
