GSA likely to fund CVE
All, At the request of Pete Tasker, I'm passing on the following announcement that was made by the US General Services Administration (GSA) at the FedCIRC conference this week. GSA has participated in the Senior Advisory Council that Pete and Margie Zuk have been creating. We are trying to obtain more details and confirmation, but we believed it was important to notify you of this development in case it gets some press coverage. We will keep you informed. - Steve -------- Original Message -------- Subject: CVE funding announcement Date: Tue, 07 Nov 2000 23:24:22 -0500 From: Pete Tasker <email@example.com> Senior Advisory Council Members and luncheon invitees, As you know, a number of you have been working on a plan to get funding lined up for the federal security program through GSA and to get CVE into a line item in the budget in FY02 and beyond as part of that security program. This afternoon at GSA's Information Technology Security Innovations Conference here in Maryland, Dave Jarrell of GSA publicly announced that they will provide "significant funding" for CVE this year and plan to fund it entirely next year. Dave had suggested to me last week that he thought he could commit GSA to $200K for CVE this year. With commitments a number of government senior executives had made for CVE funding before the invitational luncheon on 16 October, this brings FY01 support to $850K. I presume that this funding will be contingent on the final disposition of the funding for the GSA security work, but it sounds like signs are positive.
