The Office of the Deputy Director of National Intelligence for Intelligence Integration (DDII) was established in October 2010 under the leadership of Robert T. Cardillo to work toward the Director of National Intelligence James Clapper’s vision of a fully integrated Intelligence Community. Within DDII, regional and functional National Intelligence Managers (NIMs) develop Unifying Intelligence Strategies (UIS) for geographic and topic areas. The UISs serve as a roadmap to help the Intelligence Community work together on the highest-priority intelligence issues.
