FBI file project failing, IG says
The Justice Department's Inspector General Office has concluded that the FBI's Virtual Case File project, on which the bureau has spent almost $170 million since June 2001, won't succeed.
Instead, the FBI plans to launch a new case management project named the Federal Investigative Case Management System to replace VCF, according to a draft report from the Justice IG.
"The current VCF application will not meet the FBI's needs," the draft report said. "The FBI has no clear timetable or prospect for completing VCF," according to the report draft dated Dec. 20.
