Daniel D. Dubree Named Assistant Director of the FBI’s Information Technology Operations Division

Daniel D. Dubree has been named assistant director (AD) of the FBI’s Information Technology Operations Division (ITOD). Director Robert S. Mueller, III appointed him to this position to replace AD Louis Blazy, who retired. As AD of ITOD, Mr. Dubree is responsible for the operations and maintenance of all FBI information technology systems worldwide.

“Every day, FBI employees all over the world rely on our information technology systems to efficiently and effectively do their jobs. The work of the Information Technology Operations Division is crucial to keeping the FBI ready to serve,” Mueller said. “Dan brings expertise in both technical and managerial fields to this important position.”

Mr. Dubree entered on duty with the FBI’s Technical Services Division as a computer programmer in May 1984. He created the systems integrator position in support of the Field Office Automation Project, the FBI’s first nationwide deployment of an automated case management system.

Mr. Dubree became a special agent in October 1986. Upon completion of training at the FBI Academy in Quantico, Virginia, he was assigned to the Charlotte Division’s Hickory Resident Agency. In March 1991, he transferred to the New York Division, where he investigated foreign counterintelligence and white collar crime cases. In August 1996, Mr. Dubree was promoted to a supervisory role in the Criminal Justice Information Services (CJIS) Division’s Planning Unit, Programs Development Section. While there, he was responsible for program enhancements and new automation initiatives relating to the National Crime Information Center.

Mr. Dubree was designated as the supervisory senior resident agent (SSRA) of the Chicago Division’s Rockford Resident Agency in October 1998. As the SSRA, he supervised criminal investigations throughout the office’s 5,800-square-mile territory. In February 2002, he was promoted to adjudication chief of the FBI’s Office of Professional Responsibility, Adjudication Unit II., where he addressed allegations of criminality and misconduct by FBI employees.

In June 2003, Mr. Dubree was designated assistant special agent in charge (ASAC) of the FBI’s Dallas Division, the 11th largest of the FBI’s 56 field divisions. He served as the deputy program manager for the SENTINEL Program, the FBI’s largest information technology project, from January 2007 to September 2008. During this time, Mr. Dubree supervised the program’s Business Management and Organization Change Management units. He was named deputy assistant director of ITOD in August 2008.

Mr. Dubree holds a bachelor’s degree in computer science and mathematics from Catawba College, Salisbury, North Carolina. He graduated from New York Law School in 1996, and is a member of the New York and New Jersey state bars.
