1. Counterterrorism Oversight 5 3 $ 460
 
The Office of the Inspector General (OIG) requests 5 positions, 3 FTE (including 1 attorney), and $460,000 to enable the OIG to assist the Department in ensuring that its counterterrorism funds are put to the most effective use. With these positions, the OIG will continue to examine key issues in the FBI, including development of its Sentinel Case Management System, its efforts to protect the nation’s seaports, and its process for reporting possible violations involving its intelligence activities to the President's Intelligence Oversight Board. The OIG will continue to conduct audits and reviews on topics such as the operations of the Terrorist Screening Center, the Department's internal controls over terrorism reporting, intelligence sharing, and the Bureau of Prisons' efforts to improve the monitoring of communications for terrorists and other high-risk inmates. Additional resources would enable the OIG to undertake new reviews in these and other critical areas. FY 2008 current services resources for this initiative are the total program level of 434 positions (135 agents), 422 FTE, and $72,748,000.
