Year 2000 Issues within the U.S. Pacific Command's Area of Responsibility: Host Nation Support to U.S. Forces Korea   [open pdf - 1MB]

"This report monitors DoD efforts to address the year 2000 computing challenge. For a list of audit projects addressing the issue, see the year 2000 webpage on the IGnet at http://www.ignet.gov. The overall audit objective was to evaluate whether DoD adequately planned for and managed year 2000 risks to avoid disruptions to the U.S. Pacific Command's mission. Specifically, we evaluated whether year 2000 interface agreements or assurances of year 2000 compliance existed between U.S. Forces Korea and the Republic of Korea organizations providing host nation support. U.S. Forces Korea had not obtained year 2000 interface agreements or formal assurances of year 2000 compliance from Republic of Korea civil and military (government) organizations and commercially operated companies providing armistice and wartime host nation support. As a result, more needed to be done to minimize the risk of disruption - to the Republic of Korea and U.S. Combined Forces Command mission - to stabilize the international political situation on the Korean peninsula, plan for the defense of the Republic of Korea and, in the case of hostilities, direct Republic of Korea/U.S. combat forces to defeat enemy aggression."
