The ADNI(SRA) is responsible for framing major resource decisions and managing the process by which the DNI determines the National Intelligence Program (NIP).

Prior to his ODNI appointment, Dr. Mason served in a number of senior executive leadership positions in the defense-intelligence field. Most recently, he was Vice President for the Center for National Security and Intelligence at Noblis-a non-profit science, technology and strategy organization. There he led the company's largest mission area focused on WMD defense, biometrics, C3I, and law enforcement. From 2003 - 2007 he was the Director of Information Technology and Systems at the Institute for Defense Analyses (IDA) where he led a strategic division focused on information assurance, advanced information technologies, network integration and intelligence studies for senior decision makers across the national security community.

Much of this experience was at General Dynamics (formerly Veridian) where he held a number of senior leadership positions including General Manager of the Applied Sciences Group, Chief Scientist, and Director of the Advanced Systems Division.

During this period, he served as a U.S. Delegate to the United Nations on nuclear non-proliferation matters and chaired the U.S. interagency working group on radionuclide monitoring and verification. He was also a member of the U.N. Group of Scientific Experts (GSE) for the conference on disarmament.
