PB2 Performance Report for the Criminal Justice Information Program, Report No. 98-74, March 1999
Full report in PDF format

  • During Fiscal Year 1997-98, the Criminal Justice Information Program improved its performance on most of its output and outcome measures. However, the program failed to reach its performance standards for its new automated fingerprint identification system and upgrading the Florida Crime Information Center.
  • The Florida Department of Law Enforcement should review its methodology for establishing performance standards, particularly for the accuracy and completeness of criminal justice data.
  • The program's accountability system met the Office of Program Policy Analysis and Government Accountability's expectations in three of the four key areas when it was reviewed in July 1998. The program needs to continue to enhance data reliability.
  • We provided a draft of our report to the Commissioner of the Florida Department of Law Enforcement who concurred with our conclusions.
