OIG’S Analysis of the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Response

On August 17, 2006, the OIG sent a copy of the draft report to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) with a request for written comments on Recommendation 14. The FBI responded to the OIG in a memorandum dated September 22, 2006. The FBI concurred with the recommendation.

Recommendation 14:  The FBI should continue to develop and reinforce procedures for interacting with the BOP regarding international terrorist inmates, including monitoring of inmates, intelligence gathering, and sharing of information and intelligence.

Status.  Resolved – Open.

Summary of the FBI’s Response. The FBI concurred with the recommendation and stated that it will continue to reinforce and improve its Correctional Intelligence Initiative (CII), which facilitates coordination of terrorism issues between the FBI, the BOP, and state and local correctional agencies. The FBI will continue its training of CII Coordinators in each field office, who in turn help train correctional personnel. Further, the FBI will continue to grant BOP representatives to the Joint Terrorism Task Forces full access to FBI counterterrorism resources.

The OIG’s Analysis. The actions planned by the FBI are responsive to the recommendation. Please provide the status of the FBI’s improvements to the CII and its training of CII Coordinators and BOP personnel by December 1, 2006.
