Statement on Internal Controls


In planning and performing our audit of the FBIís management of its Trilogy project, we considered the FBIís internal controls for the purpose of determining our audit procedures. This evaluation was not made for the purpose of providing assurance on the internal control structure as a whole; however, we noted certain matters that we consider to be reportable conditions under the Government Auditing Standards.

Reportable conditions involve matters coming to our attention relating to significant deficiencies in the design or operation of the internal control structure that, in our judgment, could adversely affect the FBIís ability to manage its Trilogy project. During our audit, we found the following internal control deficiency.

  • The Trilogy projectís User Application Component, including the Virtual Case File, remains without final requirements or a contract to complete and fully implement the project.

Because we are not expressing an opinion on the FBIís internal control structure as a whole, this statement is intended solely for the information and use of the FBI in managing its IT investments. This restriction is not intended to limit the distribution of this report, which is a matter of public record.
