FBI Director Mueller Selects Arthur Money to Chair FBI Science and
Technology Advisory Board

FBI Director Robert Mueller today announced the selection of Arthur Money as the first chairman of the FBI's Science and Technology Advisory Board. The Science and Technology Advisory Board was authorized by Congress in February 2003 with a charge to independently advise the Director on matters relating to science, technology, research, engineering, information management, and other matters of special interest to the FBI. The focus of the panel will be on the application of science and technology to address the FBI's priorities of preventing terrorist attacks, countering foreign intelligence operations, combating cyber-based attacks, and strengthening FBI collaboration with other law enforcement and intelligence partners.

"I am pleased Art has agreed to lead our inaugural Science and Technology Advisory Board," said Director Mueller. "Art brings to the table a wealth of experience and a proven track record of accomplishment - both in the private sector and in government service - that will help make the new board a success. I look forward to consulting with Art and the board and believe they will be a valuable asset to me and the entire FBI."

Mr. Money has served in various capacities in the Department of Defense, which included two years (1999 to 2001) as Assistant Secretary of Defense for Command, Control, Communications and Intelligence (C3I). From 1998 to 2001, Mr. Money served as the Chief Information Officer for the Department of Defense. He also served as a Senior Civilian Official, Office of the Assistant Secretary of Defense, from 1998 to 1999, and prior to that time was the Assistant Secretary of the Air Force for Research, Development and Acquisition.

Mr. Money has more than 40 years of management and engineering experience with the defense electronics and intelligence industry and currently serves as a member of the advisory board to several corporations and as a member of the board of directors for numerous companies. Mr. Money holds a Masters of Science Degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Santa Clara and a Bachelor of Science Degree in Mechanical Engineering from San Jose State University. He currently serves on several U.S. Government boards and panels, including the Defense Science Board, and is a recipient of numerous awards and honors including the Intelligence Community Seal Medallion and Defense Intelligence Agency Director's Award in 2001.
