"Accordingly, the first objective in the Department's Strategic Plan for 2001-2006 is to protect America against the threat of terrorism. The three strategic objectives under this goal emphasize prevention and disruption of terrorist operations before an incident occurs, investigation of terrorist incidents to bring perpetrators to justice, and prosecution of individuals who have committed or intend to commit terrorist acts against the United States. The Strategic Plan notes the significant management challenge facing the Department as it seeks to effectively manage its counterterrorism program and avoid potential gaps in coverage or duplicate services provided by state and local governments. In separate audits, a mix of cases investigated by the FBI will be examined, as well as the FBI's management of its information technology (IT) projects."
