After months of preparation, agencies are stepping up the pace of contract
awards for tools and services to fix their year 2000 date code problems.
Viasoft Inc. of Phoenix will license its MVS and VM Cobol tools to six Cabinet-level
agencies at discounted prices through the company's US2000 program for the federal
government. Each site license runs close to $100,000.
The Air Force Materiel Systems Group at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio, is the
largest licensee. It bought three site licenses each for the Viasoft tool set and the
Rochade repository, which will go to year 2000 conversion centers in Oklahoma City; Ogden,
Utah; and Dayton, Ohio.
