SAIC rebuffs Trilogy flak

Rejecting criticism that it botched a $170 million IT upgrade project with FBI, Science Applications International Corp. asserted that it has performed well and the FBI is partly to blame for problems.

The FBI switched the focus of the Trilogy IT modernization project and changed systems requirements after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, SAIC said, responding to criticism by lawmakers following a report in Government Computer News about the program. GCN is owned by PostNewsweek Tech Media, which also owns Washington Technology.

The FBI is considering abandoning the Virtual Case File system, awarded to SAIC in 2001, because of missed deadlines, cost overruns and program snafus. It will decide after an independent evaluation of the system.
