+ - Pace at Which US Government Can Update its Websites

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "Despite what we hear about how much the US Government is struggling with a website, it is reassuring that most of the US Government entities can update their website within a day after they are asked to. This conclusion is the result of research done by the Networking Systems Laboratory at the Computer Science Department of the University of Houston. The research team tracked the US Government websites and their update times and found that 96% of the websites were updated within 24 hours after President Obama signed HR 2775 into law ending the Government shutdown. Worth noting that two websites took 8 days to update. It is interesting that the team was able to use the shutdown as an opportunity to study the efficiency of the IT departments of various parts of Government. More details at:
