Sentinel Audit V: Status of the Federal Bureau of Investigation's Case Management System   [open pdf - 377KB]

"The Department of Justice Office of the Inspector General (OIG) is performing audits of the Sentinel project at the request of the FBI Director and congressional appropriations and oversight committees. This audit is the fifth in a series of audits that the OIG has conducted to evaluate the FBI's progress in developing and implementing Sentinel. In our fourth audit, we reported that the FBI resolved most of the concerns we had identified in our first three Sentinel audits. However, in our fourth audit we identified the following areas that we believed warranted continued monitoring: identification of the data that will be stored in Sentinel, the data collection process, identification of the paper forms that will be replaced with electronic forms, and identification of the statistics that will be stored in Sentinel and how those statistics will be collected. The objectives of this current audit, the fifth in our ongoing review of Sentinel's progress, were to: evaluate the FBI's implementation of Phase 2 of the Sentinel project, including the project's cost, schedule, and performance; and assess the FBI's progress in resolving concerns identified in the OIG's previous Sentinel audits. Future OIG audits will continue to examine the progress of Sentinel over its remaining phases and assess whether Sentinel's cost, schedule, performance, and technical benchmarks are being met."
