Chief Information Officer - Who We Are

Chief Information Officer

Who We Are

Congress passed the Intelligence Reform and Terrorism Prevention Act December 17, 2004, establishing the position of the Director of National Intelligence and the supporting Office of the DNI. Six days later, Congress established the Intelligence Community Chief Information Officer through the Intelligence Authorization Act of 2005, empowering the position with Community-wide authority over enterprise architecture. The act established four areas of IC CIO responsibility above and beyond those accorded to other federal-level CIOs through legislation.

  1. Manage activities relating to IC Information Technology infrastructure and Enterprise Architecture requirements.
  2. Exercise procurement approval authority over all IT items related to IC EA components.
  3. Direct/manage IC IT-related procurement.
  4. Ensure all expenditures for IT research and development are consistent with the IC EA and the DNI’s strategy for such architecture.

President Barack Obama appointed Dr. Raymond (Ray) Cook to the position of Assistant Director of National Intelligence and IC CIO on July 23, 2015. The IC CIO reports directly to the Director of National Intelligence.

The Office of the IC CIO is organized to respond to the mission, business, and technology needs of the Intelligence Community, ensuring IC collectors and analysts have the secure services and capabilities they need to effectively do their jobs. The Office of the IC CIO has four divisions:  Strategic Programs, Mission Engagement, Information Assurance, and Information Management.


Chief Management Officer

National Intelligence Emergency Management

National Intelligence Emergency Management (NIEMA) provides for the framework, platforms, and systems to enable the Director of National Intelligence to lead an integrated and resilient IC enterprise capable of sustaining the “intelligence cycle” under any crisis or consequence management event, both at our headquarters and at our alternate operating locations.

The National Intelligence Strategy (NIS) outlines that the United States Intelligence Community must constantly strive for and exhibit three characteristics essential to our effectiveness; Integration, Agility, and Exemplification of American values. NIEMA’s vision is to utilize these three characteristics to allow us to be the key enabler for integration, collaboration, coordination, and facilitation of the IC’s resiliency enterprise framework.

We are responsible for leading the intelligence community’s emergency capabilities in support of key national preparedness, response, and recovery, and mitigation efforts including the National Continuity System, The Nuclear Command and Control System, The National Response Framework, The IC Critical Infrastructure Program, and the National Exercise Program.
