Summary
To address the Year 2000 (Y2K) computing problem, public and private organizations across the nation have required large numbers of skilled computer programmers and systems managers to remediate, test, and review mission-critical systems. The nationwide demand for skilled programmers has raised questions as to whether key organizations used foreign nationals in their Y2K activities and how any such use was controlled. At your request, we identified the extent to which foreign nationals were involved in Y2K code remediation and subsequent code review activities at the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the agency's policies covering this involvement. On December 16, 1999, we briefed your office on the results of our work. The briefing slides are included in appendix I. This report provides a high-level summary of the information presented at that briefing, including FAA's internal policies on using foreign nationals and its actual use of foreign nationals to remediate code and perform Y2K code reviews
