Abstract
THE RAPID ADVANCES IN MICRO COMPUTER TECHNOLOGY AND THE MASS MARKETING OF THE PERSONAL MICRO COMPUTER HAVE RESULTED IN DRAMATIC COST REDUCTIONS IN HARDWARE AND SOFTWARE. ALSO, THE SIGNING OF THE AIR FORCE, NAVY AND MARINE MICRO COMPUTER REQUIREMENTS CONTRACT HAS RESULTED IN A DRAMATIC 50% REDUCTION IN THE COST OF MICRO COMPUTER SYSTEMS. ALL OF THESE FACTORS MEAN THAT IT IS NOW REALISTIC AND COST EFFECTIVE TO INTEGRATE MICRO COMPUTERS INTO PROFESSIONAL WORKSTATIONS FOR THE USE OF ALL LEVELS OF GOVERNMENT PERSONNEL. THIS STUDY WILL DEVELOP A PLAN AS WELL AS DEMONSTRATE THE ADVANTAGES OF USING THE MICRO COMPUTERS TO PERMIT THE TIMELY DISSEMINATION OF INFORMATION UP AND DOWN THE CHAIN OF COMMAND, THROUGH REALISTIC USE OF ELCTRONIC MAIL.
