FBI shuts down Sentinel, again

One of the first rules, according to conventional wisdom, is when you find yourself in a hole, stop digging.
And so it is with the FBI's Sentinel multi-million dollar case-management system.
According to Washingtonian.com, a partial stop work order has been expanded to cover all of Phase 3 of the four phase program. The idea, according to an FBI statement is to allow contractor, Lockheed-Martin "to better focus its resources on the deployment of Phase 2 by fall of 2010."
Sentinel has been plagued with cost overruns and is about $30 million dollars over budget.
The first phase, notes the FBI, was delivered in June 2007 and is in use "daily by thousands of agents, analysts, and supervisors."
The FBI's Sentinel program was launched to build a paperless case management system, costing $425 million. It was supposed to be completed by last December.
