The U.S. supervision is spending some-more than $81 billion on information technology. But usually about 24% is spent altogether on new systems, with a rest being used to contend aged systems.

The Social Security Administration, for instance, has some-more than 60 million lines of Cobol, a agency’s Office of Inspector General reported final month.
