Response to OIG Review of FBI Personnel Resource Management and Casework

The following is a response to the Office of the Inspector General (OIG) audit report entitled Follow-Up Audit of the FBI’s Personnel Resource Management and Casework:

“We are pleased that this follow-up report concludes the FBI has improved its ability to monitor and evaluate its allocation and utilization of resources over the past five years. The FBI's establishment of the Resource Planning Office has helped to manage personnel resources and ensure those resources are aligned with the FBI's strategic goals. As reported, most FBI divisions are using resources as planned and did not experience significant change in the number of active investigations on priority matters over the last five years.

“Based upon a review of the report, the FBI concurs with each of the 10 recommendations directed to the FBI, and have already implemented steps to resolve all of the recommendations.

“Additionally, the FBI is pleased that this report reflects the other various FBI resource management initiatives developed over the past five years to enhance the assessment and oversight of personnel resources. The FBI remains committed to further development and deployment of these initiatives to ensure the FBI's national priorities are addressed with sufficient personnel resources.”
