The Year 2000 (Y2K) problem, or "Millennium Bug," is defined as the failure of a computer system to correctly deal with dates in the 21st Century; in particular, the transition from the year 1999, to the year 2000. With the new millennium approaching, Sierra is committed to insuring that there is no interruption in service to our clients and no decline in data quality.
As part of our process, all operations-critical, computer-based systems have been evaluated. Wherever problems have been identified, we are following a strategy of "repair or replace", depending on which is most cost effective.

All areas of computing are being addressed, including business applications, LIMS, instrument control, data processing, third-party suppliers, and service providers. Additionally, we are implementing programs to address customer concerns, vendor management, and contingency planning. The following are brief descriptions of some of the issues we're addressing in our plan.

Sierra is intent on eliminating the Y2K problem from our operations. We are committed to allocating whatever resources are necessary for upgrading or replacing hardware and software and expect to meet our target dates for compliance.
