in the FBI’s IT modernization efforts. This role either has not been understood or it has been given a lower priority based on the perception of more immediate operational priorities. Given the importance of IT to the FBI’s future success in carrying out its missions, the FBI’s senior management must concern itself as much with developing a coherent vision for using IT as with budgets, training programs, equipment, and organization. As the complexities of the FBI’s evolving role are understood, the committee believes that investment by the FBI’s senior management team in the IT process will yield major enhancements to mission achievement as well as substantial operational efficiencies.
