As a follow-up to my January 14, 2005 posting, FBI’s Custom Database Project On Verge of Failure, additional documentation and news on the issue:

  • February 3, 2005 – Senate Committee on Appropriations, Subcommittee on Commerce, Justice, State and the Judiciary, Hearing on the FBI’s Information Technology Modernization Program, Trilogy: Testimony of Robert S. Mueller, III, Director, Federal Bureau of Investigation
  • The Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Management of the Trilogy Information Technology Modernization Project, Report No. 05-07, February 2005, (Full Report, 95 pages, PDF) – “…the FBI has not succeeded in its goal to replace the antiquated ACS (Automated Case Support) system with a fully functional and effective case management system, despite more than 3 years in development and $170 million.”
  • Computer Woes Hinder FBI’s Work, Report Finds (Washington Post, reg. req’d) and FBI under fire for failed Virtual Case File program
