Trilogy hits a snag
The FBI must delay taking Trilogy, its enterprisewide investigative system, fully live because Computer Sciences Corp. has missed a delivery deadline for a component of the final phase. GSA's Federal Systems Integration Management Center, the contracting agency for the project, announced the delay Nov 3.
CSC's failure to meet its delivery date for the phase 3 information presentation component will prevent the FBI from deploying the third component, the Virtual Case File, by Dec. 13 as planned, GSA said in a statement.
Despite the delay, the bureau will continue to train all 28,000 FBI employees to use Trilogy. During the first and second phases, which wrapped up this spring, the bureau fielded 21,000 desktop PCs, 622 LANs, 2,612 switches and routers, 291 servers, and a WAN to serve users at 595 sites.
CSC said in a separate announcement that it is working with the FBI to address the delays. The FBI originally planned to spend $379 million on Trilogy, but has since received an additional $78 million to complete the project.
