US GOVERNMENT COMPUTER, COMMUNICATIONS SPENDING TO RISE 4.3% IN FISCAL 1989

Continuing budget constraints mean that US government spending on computer and communications equipment and services in the fiscal year to September 1989 will grow only 4.3% to $17,500m according to consultants Federal Sources Inc of Vienna, Virginia – but that will be an improvement on the current year, when the outturn is expected to be a rise of only 1.2% – a far cry from the double digit growth of the early years of the Reagan Administration. The Pentagon accounts for almost 50% of the budget.
