The Information and Technology Branch (ITB) is a service within the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The ITB is responsible for all FBI information technology needs and information management. ITB also promotes and facilitates the creation, sharing, and application of FBI knowledge products with the larger law enforcement community in order to improve overall Nation-wide crime fighting effectiveness.

Leadership[edit]

Headed by an FBI Executive Assistant Director, the ITB is responsible to the FBI Director through the Associate Director. As a unit of the FBI (which is a division of the United States Department of Justice), the ITB is ultimately responsible to the Attorney General of the United States.

The current Acting ITB Executive Assistant Director is Dean E. Hall, who is the ITB's Associate Executive Director / Deputy Chief Information Officer.[2] The ITB Executive Assistant Director serves as the Chief Information Officer of the FBI.

Organization[edit]

The STB was formed by the unification of the FBI's various scientific investigation and support units.
