HOMELAND SECURITY TECH: $6 BILLION The U.S. government is spending a bundle on IT for homeland security: $2.9 billion or so last year; at least that much again in 2003, News.com reports. And it may not be enough: agencies being folded into the new Homeland Security Department -- like the the Immigration and Naturalization Service, the Coast Guard and the Customs Service -- all have big, unresolved IT issues.But all this money is peanuts compared to what the Pentagon will spend; the Defense Department has requested more than $26 billion in IT funding for fiscal year 2003.
