PREFACE

The material in this report is a compilation of some of the data on the status of computers in the Federal Government and the private sector. This compilation is a combination of existing statistics from Federal Government and computer industry sources, and original statistics based on these sources. Information is included on numbers of computers installed in the Federal Government, dollar value of computers installed, numbers of computers installed by agency, Federal ADP costs by agency, and minicomputers in the Federal Government.

This report is a first attempt in sharing this kind of information; the Institute for Computer Sciences and Technology plans to share other such compilations of data which it continually gathers in the course of its activities, for its own needs and responsibilities.

The author of this compilation is Martha M. Gray of the Computer Information Section, ably assisted by Paul Majewski of the Section. Other Section staff members involved were Peter Calomeris, who helped in the preparation of some of the graphs, and Barbara Peterson and Pamela Forder, who assisted with manuscript preparation.

Special thanks for their assistance and cooperation are due Alvin Krakow, General Services Administration; Walter Haase and Boyd Alexander, Office of Management and Budget; and Walter Anderson, General Accounting Office.
