Everything is falling into place as the time nears for the National Archives and Records Administration to decide whether Harris Corp. or Lockheed Martin Corp. will run the next-generation Electronic Records Archive system, according to the Government Accountability Office.

NARA will choose one of the vendors' prototype systems this month to build the $500 million governmentwide system.

In its most recent evaluation of the project's progress, the audit agency found NARA is meeting its cost, schedule and performance goals, and has identified the risks the bureau may face.
