FBI Chief Financial Officer Richard Haley joins the program to detail financial management programs at the agency, and what the two-year budget deal means for his office. The Federal Bureau of Investigation has 56 field offices and more than 350 “resident agencies” scattered around the country. Making sure that each of those locations is properly funded, communicating with each other and able to support the agency’s mission is important. According to FBI Chief Financial Officer Richard Haley, a top priority for the CFO’s office is to acquire the latest data management and sharing tools, while still maintaining the high security the law-enforcement agency requires.   “Being an intelligence community partner, many of the systems, many of the tools we use have to be [on] a classified platform. So, getting what might be standard in a business environment and getting those tools approved to be able to use at classified levels is a challenge,” said Haley. “The more data that can be brought in, in an organized way, where you can make decisions in a quick manner, is the key in terms of the direction we are going.”   Haley said that because the bureau’s budget was “pretty much flat,” the two-year budget deal enacted in February means that the agency can allot and manage funds better.   “We were seeing more and more erosion of just being able to do those current, day-to day activities. The two-year budget deal… it gave us a higher resource level and we were able to go back and fix many of those holes and many of those gaps that we were struggling with,” Haley told Government Matters. “Being able to see that over a two-year period, especially being an organization that gets annual appropriations, it’s allowed us to be more strategic in where we’re putting our investments.”
