Government Accountability Office, Y2K Computing Challenge: Day One Planning and Operations Guide (GAO/AIMD-10.1.22) (Oct. 1999) (full-text).


A Day One strategy comprises a comprehensive set of actions to be executed by a federal agency during the last days of 1999 and the first days of 2000. It must be integrated with agency business continuity and contingency plans, and should describe the key activities and responsibilities of agency component organizations and staff.

The guide provides a conceptual framework for helping agencies develop a Day One strategy and reduce the risk of adverse Y2K impact on agency operations. It builds upon GAO's previously issued Year 2000 business continuity and contingency planning guide, and draws on other sources.
