Review of the FBI's Trilogy Information Technology
the National Academy of Sciences issued a follow-up
letter to a May 11, 2004 report they compiled entitled
"A Review of the FBI's Trilogy Information Technology
the completion of that report, FBI officials provided
a May 20, 2004 briefing to the National Research Council's
Committee (NRC) to highlight significant progress
over the past few months since the last time the FBI
had briefed NRC staff.
committee writes in today's letter that it is reassured
by the FBI plans and intentions since the delivery
of the original report. The committee also stated
they were "impressed" with the selection
and leadership of our Chief Information Officer and
saw "clear evidence of progress."
many challenges remain, the report states that the
FBI has made more rapid progress than would have been
expected from the information it had available at
the time of the original report.
appreciate the NRC's attention and input into this
important, high-priority effort and we remain committed
to the continuous strengthening of our IT capabilities.
