WHO WE ARE The Director of National Intelligence serves as the head of the U.S. Intelligence Community, overseeing and directing the implementation of the National Intelligence Program and acting as the principal advisor to the President, the National Security Council, and the Homeland Security Council for intelligence matters related to national security. The President appoints the DNI with the advice and consent of the Senate. The DNI works closely with a President-appointed, Senate-confirmed Principal Deputy Director of National Intelligence to effectively integrate all national and homeland security intelligence in defense of the homeland and in support of U.S. national security interests. AUTHORITIES & DUTIES The National Security Act of 1947, as amended by the Intelligence Reform and Terrorism Prevention Act of 2004, provides that the DNI is the head of the Intelligence Community and designates the DNI as the principal intelligence advisor to the President. To that end, Congress has provided the DNI with a number of authorities and duties, including to: Ensure that timely and objective national intelligence is provided to the President, the heads of departments and agencies of the executive branch, the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and senior military commanders, and the Congress. Establish objectives and priorities for collection, analysis, production and dissemination of national intelligence. Ensure maximum availability of and access to intelligence information within the Intelligence Community. Develop and ensure the execution of an annual budget for the National Intelligence Program based on budget proposals provided by IC component organizations. Oversee coordination of relationships with the intelligence or security services of foreign governments and international organizations. Ensure the most accurate analysis of intelligence is derived from all sources to support national security needs. Develop personnel policies and programs to enhance the capacity for joint operations and to facilitate staffing of community management functions. Oversee the development and implementation of a program management plan for acquisition of major systems, doing so jointly with the Secretary of Defense for DoD programs, that includes cost, schedule, and performance goals and program milestone criteria. The core mission of the ODNI is to lead the IC in intelligence integration, forging a community that delivers the most insightful intelligence possible. That means effectively operating as one team: synchronizing collection, analysis and counterintelligence so that they are fused. This integration is the key to ensuring national policymakers receive timely and accurate analysis from the IC to make educated decisions. OUR MISSION - Lead Intelligence Integration. - Forge an Intelligence Community that delivers the most insightful intelligence possible. OUR VISION - A Nation made more secure because of a fully integrated Intelligence Community. OUR GOALS - Integrate intelligence analysis and collection to inform decisions made from the White House to the foxhole. - Drive responsible and secure information-sharing. - Set strategic direction and priorities for national intelligence resources and capabilities. - Develop and implement Unifying Intelligence Strategies across regional and functional portfolios. - Strengthen partnerships to enrich intelligence. - Advance cutting-edge capabilities to provide global intelligence advantage. - Promote a diverse, highly-skilled intelligence workforce that reflects the strength of America. - Align management practices to best serve the Intelligence Community. HISTORY The idea of a Director of National Intelligence dates to 1955 when a blue-ribbon study commissioned by Congress recommended that the Director of Central Intelligence employ a deputy to run the CIA so that the director could focus on coordinating the overall intelligence effort. This notion emerged as a consistent theme in many subsequent studies of the Intelligence Community commissioned by both the legislative and executive branches over the next five decades.
