Thanks, John. I do want to add that David's characterization was correct
for the initial 2008 mandate. What he described happened at my agency and
many others. It was enabled on the network backbone and then nothing
further was done. That experience informed the way the subsequent 2012 and
2014 mandates were designed. And those were and continue to be much more
successful. Yes, there's enormous progress in the federal government,
though experience varies from agency to agency. The approach has been and
continues to be on building and sustaining transition efforts.
