Legislative Affairs

What We Do

OLA’s mission is to act as the principal interface between the ODNI (and the IC on certain issues) and Congress. Its charge is to facilitate the implementation of those sections of the National Security Act of 1947, as amended, which stipulate that the heads of the IC agencies shall “keep the Congressional intelligence committees fully and currently informed of all intelligence activities of the United States.  This is accomplished through hearings, budget documentation, briefings, Congressional Notifications, written reports, site visits, correspondence, phone calls, and emails.

OLA provides support and legislative strategies to senior ODNI leadership; leads Congressional engagements on behalf of the ODNI; obtains Congressional support for ODNI/IC budget requests and authorities/policies; and in coordination with the Office of the General Counsel provides IC views and support to the White House and National Security Council Staff on legislative matters.

Policy & Strategy

Policy Division

The mission of the Policy Division in the Office of the Assistant Director of National Intelligence for Policy and Strategy (OADNI/P&S) is to manage a unified, effective, and accountable policy process, based on a philosophy of communication, integration, and collaboration, to advance the transformation of the Intelligence Community (IC).

The Policy Division is charged with developing, coordinating, and maintaining policy for the IC. The Division seeks to establish an integrated and transformed IC through the promulgation of enduring policies that address executive direction, legislative requirements, and IC priorities.

IC policy is designed to strengthen the ability of the DNI to lead the IC as a unified enterprise, emphasize intelligence integration as the consistent organizing principle, and enable each IC agency to perform its missions and functions.

The Policy Division establishes a work plan with inputs from ODNI and IC leadership. By working closely with both ODNI and IC stakeholders, the Policy Division develops policies through a deliberate, collaborative, and iterative process.  As law, national direction, and requirements change, the Policy Division reviews and revises policy as appropriate to maintain relevancy and currency.
