GAO's warning to the VA

The Government Accountability Office is out with a scathing new report warning the Department of Veterans Affairs to stop the planned rollout of its electronic health records modernization program. The watchdog says the $16 billion system needs further testing or it may suffer a catastrophic failure. The program has faced critical shortfalls and the VA hasn’t tested in a way that could fully expose its weak spots, the GAO states in the report released Thursday. Thus the VA should “postpone deployment of its new EHR system at planned locations until any resulting critical and high severity test findings are appropriately addressed.” the report says.

The QSMO would need legislative authority to compel all .gov agencies to use the resulting govnet services. The recommendation comes as the Biden administration is expected to eventually release a governmentwide cybersecurity strategy as it continues to respond to the SolarWinds breach. Dave Nyczepir has the story.

The edge is no longer in an earthly battlezone. Now, the edge is in space. HPE announced a partnership Thursday with NASA to send a new computer designed to deliver artificial intelligence into orbit. Later this month, the new Spaceborne Computer-2 will become the first high-performance commercial computer to operate in space on the International Space Station, allowing astronauts to process data that used to take months in mere minutes. Jackson has this too.
