      ITAA Calls for Back-Up of Federal Communications Systems

      Arlington, Va. -- In letters this week to a pair of congressional leaders,
      the Information Technology Association of America (ITAA), an
      Arlington-based trade group, called on Congress to pass legislation that
      would create redundant and physically separate communications systems for
      key federal agencies. The group sent letters to Joe Lieberman, chairman of
      the Senate Committee on Government Affairs and Ernest Istook, chairman of
      the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Treasury, Postal and General
      Government, asking that they push for the legislation. The Senate passed
      such a bill in December 2001 before it stalled in the House. "September 11
      demonstrated quite graphically that unless communications systems have a
      backup system that is physically separate from the original system, true
      backups do not exist," said ITAA President Harris Miller.
