Sentinel Audit III: Status of the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s
Case Management System (Redacted - Public Version)
Audit Report 07-40
Office of the Inspector General
In planning and performing our audit of the FBI’s contract for its Sentinel project, we considered the FBI’s 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 FBI’s ability to manage its Sentinel project. During our audit, we found the following internal control deficiencies.
EVM cost data needs to be reconciled with the costs incurred that was reported by Lockheed Martin, the prime contractor for the development of Sentinel.
Contingency plans for highly ranked project risks need to be developed.
Measurements of effectiveness for risk mitigation plans need to be developed.
Project issues (risks that have occurred) and their resolution are not tracked.
Because we are not expressing an opinion on the FBI’s internal control structure as a whole, this statement is intended solely for the information and use of the FBI in contracting for the Sentinel project. This restriction is not intended to limit the distribution of this report, which is a matter of public record.
