RELEASES SENTINEL SOLICITATION
Washington , D.C. - The
FBI Office of IT Program Management released today its formal solicitation
for proposals to develop the FBI's next generation electronic information
management system, Sentinel. The solicitation was sent to more than 40 eligible
companies under a National Institutes of Health (NIH) government-wide contracting
Sentinel will consolidate
and replace the FBI's legacy case management capabilities with an integrated,
paperless file management and workflow system. It will significantly contribute
to the ongoing modernization of the FBI's Information Technology capabilities
and help the FBI achieve its mission transformation goals.
Sentinel will further
enable the FBI to achieve its mission priorities by enhancing information
access and promoting information sharing with law enforcement and intelligence
community members, to include the Department of Justice and the Department
of Homeland Security. The program will incrementally deliver capabilities
to FBI users over the life of the project.
To facilitate ease of
user transition, training, deployment and support, Sentinel will be delivered
in four phases, with each phase introducing new capabilities, transferring
existing information and retiring legacy functions.
In accordance with standard
government business practice, proposal responses will be submitted to the
FBI for evaluation in the Fall of 2005 followed by a tentative contract awarding
at the end of 2005.
