Y2K Compliance: Bridge Monitoring System and Contract Management System

The Department of Transportation maintains the Bridge Monitoring System, which contains information about the bridges in New York State. The Department also maintains the Contract Management System, which contains information about bridge and highway construction projects. We reviewed the actions taken by the Department in attempting to ensure that activities dependent on these two systems are not significantly disrupted because of data processing difficulties related to the year 2000. We found the Department is taking many of the actions needed to prevent such difficulties. However, the Department still needs to prepare contingency plans for the two systems to ensure that services are not disrupted if data processing difficulties are encountered in relation to the year 2000.
