Drawing on a broad legal and policy framework, and in concert with partner offices and institutions, the CLPO provides oversight, advice, guidance, education, and training. CLPO engages in public outreach and communication initiatives that foster awareness of how the IC accomplishes its intelligence mission while protecting Constitutional values.
The CLPO also reviews, assesses, and, where appropriate, investigates complaints and other information indicating possible abuses of civil liberties and privacy in the administration of ODNI programs and operations.
IC on the Record Website Launched
IC on the Record is a new website maintained by ODNI, which provides the public with direct access to factual information related to the lawful foreign surveillance activities carried out by the Intelligence Community. Note that on August 26, IC on the Record posted a statement about Executive Order 12333 from Civil Liberties Protection Officer Alex Joel.
CLPO Site Revamped
CLPO’s pages have recently been revamped to provide easier access to information about how the Intelligence Community protects civil liberties and privacy. In particular, we’ve added the following additional CLPO resource pages: CLPO at a Glance; IC Civil Liberties & Privacy Framework; FISA Resources; NCTC Guidelines; ODNI Privacy Documents; IC Principles of Professional Ethics; and Submit a Complaint.
For example, under CLPO at a Glance you will find key documents, such as our enterprise strategy, Civil Liberties and Privacy Intelligence Community Enterprise Strategy 2012-2017; and articles and speeches, such as The Job of Protecting Security and Privacy - August 13, 2013 (Civil Liberties Protection Officer Alex Joel discusses his role as the IC's Civil Liberties Protection Officer).
The FISA Resources page gathers together in one place links to information about the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) that is posted on www.dni.gov. This includes the recently-released semi-annual compliance assessment, jointly submitted by ODNI and the Department of Justice, on the implementation of Section 702 of FISA, which CLPO helps prepare.
