FBI struggles with data management

GCN 12/03/02

FBI continues push to improve records management

By Wilson P. Dizard III

To get a grip on its files, the FBI is busy converting 750,000 documents a 
day to a common electronic format.

The bureau is scanning its records at a facility dubbed the DocLab. The 
DocLab uses a dirty optical character reader process, as opposed to a 
corrected OCR process, to speed up operations, said William L. Hooton, 
assistant director of the FBI’s new Records Management Division. “We just 
don’t have the time right now to do very high-quality OCR,” he said. The 
purpose of scanning the records is to create databases to which the bureau 
can apply data mining techniques, Hooton said.

SBA using Web for backup, recovery

By Jason Miller

As part of an agencywide desktop client and network upgrade, the Small 
Business Administration has moved its data backup and recovery operations to 
the Web. SBA hired Iron Mountain Inc. of Boston for electronic datavaulting 
services using software from LiveVault Corp. of Marlborough, Mass.

The one-year contract with Iron Mountain will cost SBA $30 to $50 per 
gigabyte of data stored. SBA stores about 200G, said Sherry Hill, the SBA 
project manager.

“The main force behind this was to reduce the risk of the staff not being 
able to do its job,” said Larry Barrett,the agency’s CIO. “We always had 
procedures in place to do backup and recovery, but it was manual anddependent 
usually on one person. We wanted to explore ways to automate to give us 
greater security and store

the data offsite.”
