    The FBI's project to develop a new case management system is $100 million over budget and nearly two years behind schedule, a report says.

    ... The entire project was supposed to be completed by December 2009. Now the project is slated to be completed in September 2011 at a total cost of $451 million. That project cost estimate increased from $425 million in October 2007 after the first phase was completed.

    Failure to complete the project's third and fourth phases has hindered the ability of FBI agents and analysts to fully search the agency's case files, the report found.

    One of the first rules, according to conventional wisdom, is when you find yourself in a hole, stop digging.

    And so it is with the FBI's Sentinel multi-million dollar case-management system.

    According to, a partial stop work order has been expanded to cover all of Phase 3 of the four phase program. The idea, according to an FBI statement is to allow contractor, Lockheed-Martin "to better focus its resources on the deployment of Phase 2 by fall of 2010."

    Sentinel has been plagued with cost overruns and is about $30 million dollars over budget.

    ... The FBI's Sentinel program was launched to build a paperless case management system, costing $425 million. It was supposed to be completed by last December.
