FLETA Accreditation Awards
John Moran announced that the FLETA Board Review Committee conducted a review
of the IRS-CI Basic Instructor/Facilitator Training Program (BIFT) on Wednesday
March 21, 2007. Following the review the
FLETA Board approved an accreditation award for the IRS-CI BIFT program.
Lane Timm, Director of IRS National Criminal Investigation Training Academy,
stated that working towards the accreditation was painful and a lot more work
than they had anticipated it to be, but that it was definitely worth it. Ms. Timm also announced that being accredited
had already proven beneficial when the IRS came before a Senate Committee
hearing and was asked if they were accredited.
Mr. Moran expressed his
thanks and gratitude to the team leader and assessors who completed the IRS-CI
assessment. Present was Mr. Al Wheaton, U.S. Coast Guard, he was given a Certificate
of Appreciation. The other assessors
were Team Leader Chris Graham, Bureau of Prisons and Tracy Bonner, FLETC, Artesia, NM.
were received for:
- U.S. Postal Inspection

requiring the submission of FLETA Annual Reports within 30 days after the
anniversary date of accreditation.
