RESPONDS TO OIG REPORT ON SENTINEL AUDIT
D.C. - The FBI responded today to the release of an Office
of the Inspector General's (OIG) report entitled "Sentinel
Audit II: Status of the Federal Bureau of Investigation's
Case Management System."
FBI appreciates the Inspector General's continued interest
and assessment of the Sentinel program. The OIG performed
the audit at the request of the FBI Director and Congress.
This audit was the second in a series of audits to evaluate
the progress and implementation of Sentinel.
to the audit the FBI has made "good progress"
in addressing the concerns surrounding staffing, information
sharing, earned value management, cost tracking and controls,
and documentation that were identified in the first audit
II of the Sentinel program is expected to cost approximately
$157 million. As part of the President's FY 2007 budget
request, $100 million in funding was requested. The balance
of $57 million has long been identified from existing FBI
balances and will not impact operational programs. The total
project cost for Sentinel was budgeted at a cost of $425
million and that figure remains the same. Characterizations
to the contrary are misleading.
this time, Sentinel is within cost and schedule.
