DOJ IT Strategic Plan
Fiscal Years 2006 - 2011
A Message from the Chief Information Officer
In January of 2005, my office released the Department of Justice (DOJ)
Information Technology Strategic Plan (ITSP), which highlighted the
strategic importance of information for protecting American lives and
carrying out the fundamental purposes of government. IT remains a critical
asset that must be strategically utilized to support the new counter
terrorism mission of the DOJ. Since 2005, we have made aggressive strides
in implementing a sound enterprise architecture (EA) driven by strategies
to further the mission of the Department, and will continue to do so
in the upcoming years. I would like to highlight the following five
- Information Sharing : For the first time, as part of our OneDOJ
program, state and local law enforcement gained one-stop access to
law enforcement information from DOJ’s Investigative components
with the use of the Law Enforcement Information Exchange (LInX) and
FBI’s Regional Data Exchange (R-DEx).
- Internal IT Management: OCIO issued a new IT policy, revised the
IT Strategic Plan, and drafted a new business model for OCIO Working
Capital Fund Investments. All three help provide the transparency
we need to allocate resources wisely across the Department.
- IT Security: DOJ’s IT systems are now far less vulnerable
to cyber attacks thanks to the efforts of the IT Security and Component
Security Staffs by using the Cyber Security Assessment and Management
- Enterprise Solutions: We continue to make progress in bringing the
Department together with enterprise-wide IT solutions (Justice Unified
Telecommunications Network, Litigation Case Management System, and
Sentinel) getting underway.
- Interoperable Biometric Standard: DOJ can now work more easily with
the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and Department of State
(DOS) to build interoperable biometric systems in particular between
DHS’s Automated Biometric Identification System (IDENT) and
the FBI’s Integrated Automated Fingerprint Identification System
While we praise the efforts of our accomplishments to date, I look
forward to build on the progress in 2006 and beyond in the following
- Law Enforcement Information Sharing: We will use lessons learned
from the LInX pilot as we move forward on additional OneDOJ pilots
in addition to building the cross-government counterterror Information
Sharing Environment (ISE) and driving information sharing standards
such as the National Information Exchange Model (NIEM).
- President’s Management Agenda (PMA) and Scorecards: We will
ensure that the Department meets its expanded e-Government and EA
PMA goals by achieving a “Green” by March 31, 2006.
- Internal IT Management: We will continue strengthening the investment
management review process, developing and extending our EA, and integrating
component and departmental approaches via the OCIO working closely
with the Components to strengthen our collaboration.
- Enterprise Solutions: We will continue to deliver on the solutions
we have started: Justice United Telecommunications Network (JUTNet),
Justice Consolidated Office Network (JCON IIa), Justice Consolidated
Office Network – Secret (JCON-S) and Top Secret, the Department’s
Litigative Case Management System (LCMS), as well as Homeland Security
Presidential Directive – 12 (HSPD-12) work.
As in 2005, the challenges before us remain daunting, but not insurmountable.
We have made great strides in improving IT in the Department of Justice,
yet a great deal of work remains to be done. I will continue to press
for continuous improvement and with the help and support of the skilled
and dedicated men and women who manage and implement our IT programs,
I am confident that we will succeed.
