Mr. Ferro is an Information Systems Specialist in the Membership Services Division and he is involved in a survey of hardware and software technology. Mr. Ferro is interested in pursuing a "user-friendly" interface for their systems. He described the facilities of the House Informa- tion Systems which include two Amdahl V-5's, an ATEX system for bill preparation, a Xerox 9700 printer and a COMTEN processor. The software services include SCORPIO (Library of Congress), JURIS (Department of Justice), and STAIRS running under CICS. We briefly reviewed our centralized services including VM/370 time sharing, batch services and data base management. We concluded that while our direction is interesting to Mr. Ferro it is not especially relevant to the problems he is addressing.
