BLM interest in the ALMRS dates back to the Carter administration, which wanted to speed up the agency's oil and gas leasing process in response to the Arab oil crises of the mid-1970s.
Finally, after system testing in 1998 and the subsequent release of a GAO report that essentially termed the ALMRS inoperable in its present form, the BLM elected not to renew its contract with CSC and suspended further work on the program.
BLM programmers currently are studying ALMRS software code to see if any portions can be applied to a future "modular" system that may incorporate some of the features initially envisaged for ALMRS.
