    The overall objectives of the FBI are to uphold the law--to 
investigate violations of Federal criminal law, to protect the United 
States from foreign hostile intelligence efforts, to provide leadership 
and assistance to other Federal, State, local, and international law 
enforcement agencies, and to perform these responsibilities in a manner 
that is faithful to the Constitution and the laws of the United States.

    These objectives result in the FBI being actively involved in a wide 
range of investigations, including traditional law enforcement 
investigations (bank robbery, kidnaping, fugitive, bank embezzlement, 
etc.), investigations involving more modern phenomena (organized crime, 
white-collar crime, drug investigations, gang violence, health care 
fraud, environmental crimes, civil rights violations, antitrust 
violations, etc.), and investigations of foreign intelligence activities 
within the United States. The FBI has concurrent jurisdiction with DEA 
over Federal drug violations.

    The direct programs of the FBI are divided into the following 
general categories:

    Criminal, security, and other investigations.--This activity 
includes all field investigations of the Federal Bureau of 
Investigation. These investigations are conducted by FBI Special Agents 
in 56 field offices and approximately 400 resident offices located 
throughout the United States and Puerto Rico. National priority 
investigations include white-collar crime, drugs, organized crime, 
counterterrorism and foreign counterintelligence, and investigations 
relating to violent crimes and major offenders. Other investigative 
areas are civil rights and Indian Country law enforcement.

    This activity also includes resources devoted to national program 
supervision, coordination, and management of FBI investigations, and 
liaison with foreign police and security services through Legal 
Attaches.

    Highlights of 1999 funding initiatives include: (1) $11.6 million 
for additional field agents to investigate computer crimes; (2) $10.4 
million to enhance the analysis and early warning capability of the 
Computer Investigations and Infrastructure Threat Assessment Center; (3) 
$50 million for information technology equipment and services to improve 
the sharing and analysis of investigative data within the FBI; and (4) 
$8.1 million for law enforcement in Indian Country, including $4.7 
million for Safe Trails Task Forces and $3.4 million for victim/witness 
assistance.

                                     1997 actual  1998 est.   1999 est.
Investigative matters pending--

Investigative matters opened........     104,246     105,253     104,749
Investigative matters closed........      98,168      98,232      98,200

    * Measures reported in past years, such as arrests, indictments, and 
convictions, are not considered useful indicators of the outcome or impact 
of law enforcement activities by the Department of Justice. The Department 
will continue to develop new and more meaningful performance measures as 
part of the implementation of the Government Performance and Results Act.

    Law enforcement support.--This activity consists of training, 
recruitment, applicant investigations, forensic laboratories, 
investigative records and communications, ADP and telecommunications, 
and technical field support and services, identification, and 
informational services.

    Program direction.--This activity includes the management, 
administrative support, legal, planning, evaluation, inspection, and 
financial functions of the FBI. Some workload measures include press 
releases, assistance to media, dissemination of FBI publications, 
electronic surveillance applications, undercover operations proposals, 
civil actions, field office audits, and position classification matters.

    Health care fraud enforcement.--This activity consists of FBI 
efforts to combat health care fraud and abuse. Since 1997, the FBI is 
reimbursed for investigations of health care fraud, as a result of the 
enactment of the Health Care Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 
(P.L. 104-191).

    The FBI also carries out a number of other activities on a 
reimbursable basis. The FBI is reimbursed for its participation in 
Interagency Crime and Drug Enforcement programs. Additionally, the FBI 
is reimbursed by other Federal agencies for certain investigative 
activities, such as pre-employment background inquiries and fingerprint 
and name checks, and by non-Federal agencies for pre-employment 
fingerprint and name checks.
