Daley to release digital plans

The Commerce Department next week will announce details of its plan to create a paperless environment by 2002.

Commerce Secretary William M. Daley announced the creation of the Digital Department in July. Daley gave chief information officer Roger Baker and Karen Hogan, the new director of the Digital Department, 45 days to develop a plan for the project [GCN, July 12, Page 8].'Baker and Hogan finished the plan in late August, but Daley's schedule prevented them from presenting the plan to him until Nov. 12.

Commerce needs $5 million to install the fiber-optic backbone needed to carry high-bandwidth traffic for the initiative, department officials said.
