Last week the FBI hosted an Industry Day with industry members to describe planning for its upcoming acquisition of its next generation information system, SENTINEL. Additionally, mission partners from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the Department of Justice (DOJ) presented information on their expectation of how SENTINEL will enhance information sharing across organizational boundaries.
Twenty-seven companies, consisting of eighty-seven representatives, attended the half-day event. Attendees were offered the opportunity to gain additional insight on SENTINEL's direction from a group of senior FBI technology officials.
