¹ OGC - Office of General Counsel: this may not denote the FBI's Office. Specifically, it could refer to DOJ, DOD, and etc. Use your judgement from the context used.

² TICTU: Found only 2 refs for this, one was a technical writing sample which mentioned "acquisition strategies of information technology systems" in relation to the FBI. It may be a unit responsible for taps, the tap itself, or the intelligence gained from one. And there's this transcript:

AHMED ABDEL SATTAR, a/k/a "Abu Omar," a/k/a "Dr. Ahmed,"

18    understanding that before it's displayed to the jury, we'll
19    redact the sentence, the material that begins, the TICTU
20    THE COURT:  OK.  All right.  With that redaction
21    LS1022 received in evidence.
