Lawmakers on Capitol Hill are casting a wary eye on one of the biggest information technology projects in the Federal government: the effort to build the "Electronic Records Archive" at the National Archives and Records Administration. Congressional watchdogs say the project has been plagued by contractor delays and cost overruns. And now, a House panel is wondering if NARA will ever realize the expectations from the ERA project.

A little more than a month ago, officials at the National Archives admitted to the loss of a hard drive containing the personal information of millions of military veterans. Before that, there was the loss of a hard drive containing messages from the Clinton White House. The handling of these data devices was the focus of Thursday's hearing of the House Information Policy, Census, and National Archives Subcommittee.
In the process of converting Clinton-era White House documents to a new electronic storage system, the National Archives turns to popular portable digital storage devices. Then, one of those portable hard drives disappears. And a House committee gets a progress report on the investigation.
