NIST program helps small firms prepare for any Y2K problems

WASHINGTON – The Commerce Department’s National Institute of Standards and Technology is offering a nationwide program to help small businesses prepare for potential Y2K problems.

Developed by the Manufacturing Extension Partnership, the program provides a number of resources to be used in conjunction with existing services, such as technical assistance at the Y2K Help Center for Small Businesses and free Y2K Self-Help Tool planning software designed to assist small businesses as they make the transition to the year 2000.

Businesses are being advised to anticipate how and when systems may fail of cause disruptions. To face this problem, the program is offering the Y2K Jumpstart Kit. Technical assistance in both English and Spanish is available by calling the Y2K Help Center. And if unexpected problems do occur, the program provides software and a sourcebook with information on rapid response strategies and recovery procedures.

All resources are available for free online at y2khelp.nist.gov. The Help Center can be reached at 800-Y2K-7557 or by e-mail at y2khelp@nist.gov.
