WASHINGTON (AP) - FBI agents are conducting a search of the offices of the District of Columbia’s chief technology officer.

The head of that office, Vivek Kundra, recently left to take a job with the Obama administration.

Katherine Schweit, spokeswoman for the FBI’s Washington field office, said a search is being conducted that is part of an ongoing investigation.

Schweit declined to say what the subject of the investigation is, or comment further on the case.

President Barack Obama named Kundra earlier this month to help oversee the ability of government computer systems to speak to each other and security for vast federal information databanks.
