The Federal Bureau of Investigation's Efforts to Improve the Sharing of Intelligence and Other Information
Report Number 04-10
Office of the Inspector General
We have audited the FBI's intelligence and information-sharing efforts related to counterterrorism. The audit generally covered the period September 2001 through April 2003, and included a review of the FBI’s identification of impediments to intelligence and information sharing, actions taken to improve intelligence and information sharing, and dissemination methods. The audit was conducted in accordance with Government Auditing Standards.
In connection with the audit and as required by the standards, we reviewed procedures, activities, and records to obtain reasonable assurance about the FBI's compliance with laws and regulations that, if not complied with, we believe could have a material effect on the program operations. Compliance with laws and regulations applicable to the program is the responsibility of the program's management.
Our audit included examining, on a limited test basis, evidence about laws and regulations. The specific laws for which we conducted tests are contained in:
The FBI complied with the laws and regulations cited above. With respect to those transactions not tested, nothing came to our attention that caused us to believe that the FBI was not in compliance with the referenced laws.
