The addition of TI's team of more than 25 professionals to the Deloitte organization's Federal practice will accelerate the strategic goal of extending its leadership in ERP implementations to the Department of Defense (DoD) and intelligence community.

"The addition of TI Consulting is an important milestone in our continuing strategy to expand the Deloitte organization's Federal practice," said Gene Procknow, Managing Director, Federal Government Services, Deloitte & Touche USA LLP. "TI has an experienced, accomplished team with top-level clearances special to the intelligence community, a growing track record of successful Oracle/PeopleSoft implementations, multi-year prime contracts and strong relationships with the DoD and intelligence community. These are critical capabilities as we seek to further expand our presence in the intelligence community. We are delighted to welcome the entire TI team, including our new principal, Karen Druffel, to the Deloitte U.S. Firms."

"As we looked to the future, we recognized that joining the Deloitte organization's Federal practice would be an excellent strategic fit. Together, we have the resources, infrastructure, relationships and experience to take our intel community ERP businesses to the next level. I am looking forward to working with Gene and the Federal practice team."

Raduege Jr., chairman of the Deloitte Center for Network Innovation, who was previously director of the Defense Information Systems Agency; Mary Corrado, a Deloitte & Touche director in the DoD/Intel Practice, who had served as chief financial officer at the Central Intelligence Agency and the National Reconnaissance Office; and Doug Palmer, senior manager, Deloitte & Touche, who was formerly director of the In-Q-Tel Interface Center.
