Lost Laptop Follies, Part 6: DOE Missing 1,400 Laptops

by on May 29, 2007 · 4 comments

Previous installments (1, 2, 3, 4 & 5) in this series have documented how our government seems to have a difficult time keeping tabs on laptops and personal information. The latest on this front comes from the Energy Department which notified Congress yesterday that it has lost 1,415 laptop PCs over the past six years. However, according to this report in Government Computer News, the DOE stressed that none of the laptops contained classified information. I guess that qualifies as good news on this front.

    That’s like, $2,800,000 worth of laptops if they were worth an average of $2k each.

    If they lost them, does it mean we get those tax dollars back?

    Criminy.
