10 legacy systems in need of modernization | FCW


The Government Accountability Office has issued a list of the 10 most critical legacy systems in need of modernization.

After reviewing 65 legacy systems from the 24 Chief Financial Officers Act agencies, GAO selected 10 systems that have unsupported hardware and software, are using outdated languages or operating with known security vulnerabilities.

The watchdog did not identify the specific systems, but in an appendix offered a generalized discussion of the applications along with the number of users and annual operating and labor costs. The systems range from a Department of Education system that supports processing of federal student aid applications to a system used by the Interior Department to support the operation of dams and power plants on a specific river.
