The Justice Department has hired consulting firm Arthur Andersen LLP to conduct a management study at the FBI and recommend changes to improve the troubled agency. The study is part of a broad Justice Department review of the FBI ordered by Attorney General John Ashcroft. Arthur Andersen will look at the FBI's organizational structure, review FBI policies regarding recordkeeping, technology and human resources, and examine how the FBI reacts to crises. The government will pay $790,000 for the study, which is due Jan. 1, 2002.
