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 nationwide 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 James Turgal, who is the ITB's Associate Executive Director, replacing Dean Hall. [2] The ITB Executive Assistant Director previously served as the Chief Information Officer of the FBI, but the job of Chief Information Officer is currently filled by Dr. Gordon Bitko.

Organization[edit]

The Information and Technology Branch is formed by three Divisions.
