Federal Desktop Core Configuration Statement of Direction
FDCC stands for Federal Desktop Core Configuration. The FDCC specifies mandatory configuration requirements for the Microsoft Windows XP Pro and Windows Vista operating systems when used on US Government desktop systems. It also specifies mandatory configuration requirements for Microsoft Internet Explorer 7 when used on these operating systems. This paper shows that the US Office of Management and Budget (OMB), which manages the budget for US Federal Government agencies, issued the FDCC. OMB is enforcing FDCC compliance by mandating Federal procurement guidelines covering applications that run on XP Pro or Vista systems.
