MAY 10—The FBI is looking to the Navy for possible ideas on how to manage its LANs.

FBI officials are examining the possibility of outsourcing the bureau's desktop PCs and services in a setup similar to the Navy-Marine Corps Intranet contract, said Mark Tanner, FBI information resources manager.

The bureau is considering outsourcing in a number of areas, said Tanner, speaking at the Federal Sources Inc. Outlook 2002 conference today in McLean, Va. He cited help desks and some accounting and budgetary functions as some of the activities being discussed for outsourcing.

Bob Dies, the bureau's chief information officer, encourages the study, Tanner said. 'We got a new CIO in July who believes that industry is faster and better, and we believe him,' Tanner said. 'We are trying to determine our outsourcing strategies.'
