ADP in Government Administration.
The organization and promotion of automatic data processing (ADP) in federal, state (or regional) and local government in developing nations requires international assistance and cooperation. At present, there is no comprehensive survey on ADP applications in public administration in various countries and in countries where these applications are known to exist, they do not have validity for the majority of developing countries. Research is vital, and the acceptance of the concept of data banks requires further development to assist interested countries. A master plan is required, and the severe lack of skilled manpower must be remedied. An interdepartmental authority should be established and international cooperation strengthened to assist countries to meet their goals. (AB)
