The interoperability expert. Jarral was instrumental in conceiving and implementing a new standards-based interoperability program to help advance information sharing in the justice, public safety and homeland security environments. He educated mission and industry partners about the value of adopting interoperability standards and recruited the right partners to develop the program, which directly supports the president's National Strategy for Information Sharing and Safeguarding. The FBI and other agencies are actively exploring the program’s ability to help drive standards for cross-domain interoperability among federal, state and other partners.
