National Intelligence Council - Global Trends

Monday, April 02, 2012

National Intelligence Council

Global Trends

For nearly two decades, National Intelligence Council's Global Trends Report has been shaping strategic conversations within and beyond the US Government. In creating the report, the NIC engages expertise from outside government on factors of such as globalization, demography and the environment, producing a forward-looking document to aid policymakers in their long term planning on key issues of worldwide importance.

Since the first Global Trends was released in 1997, the audience for each report has expanded, generating more interest and reaching a broader audience that the one that preceded it.

A new Global Trends report is published every four years following the U.S. presidential election.


Global Trends 2035

Critical to its insight and policy-relevance have been meetings worldwide with a wide range of interlocutors—including government officials, scholars, business people, civil society representatives, and others—in workshops, exchanges, and other events designed to stimulate thinking about possible global trajectories and discontinuities over the next two decades. 

Individuals from scores of countries and walks of life have helped the NIC examine trends—including economics, demography, ecology, energy, health, governance, security, identity, and geopolitics—and understand their implications for peace, security, and prosperity worldwide.  

The NIC crystallizes ideas gleaned from these meetings as well as extensive research in a Global Trends report published every four years, between the US Presidential Election Day and Inauguration Day.

Who Reads Global Trends?

In December 2016, the US President-elect will receive Global Trends 2035, the sixth edition in the National Intelligence Council’s (NIC) series aimed at providing a framework for thinking about the future.

This time period affords the incoming or returning President and senior staff  the opportunity to weigh the report’s  judgments and lay the groundwork to address long-range issues of importance to national and global security. 

The report also is publicly released, aiding policymakers, scholars, and others in many countries in better understanding possible trends and discontinuities in the global environment. 


Join the Conversation

As the NIC prepares Global Trends 2035, it is consulting an increasingly diverse set of voices worldwide—both established and new—to help it question assumptions, identify new issues, and help conceptualize a framework that lays out in a cogent and understandable style the consequential trends and surprises that could occur in the next 20 years.  

Some of the questions the NIC and its partners are exploring include:
  • Will power continue to diffuse or concentrate in the future?

  • To what extent will further advances in communications technology transform societies and the relationship between citizens and governments?

  • How will automation and robotics impact human employment and economies? 

  • Which currently unresolved questions or uncertainties regarding society, economy, and politics are likely to be most game-changing through 2035?

Who We Are

National Intelligence Council SealThe National Intelligence Council supports the Director of National Intelligence in his role as head of the Intelligence Community (IC) and is the IC’s center for long-term strategic analysis.

Since its establishment in 1979, the NIC has served as a bridge between the intelligence and policy communities, a source of deep substantive expertise on intelligence issues, and a facilitator of Intelligence Community collaboration and outreach.

The NIC’s National Intelligence Officers — drawn from government, academia, and the private sector—are the Intelligence Community’s senior experts on a range of regional and functional issues.

Acquisition, Technology, & Facilities - What We Do

Monday, April 09, 2012

Acquisition, Technology, & Facilities

What We Do

The Acquisition, Technology and Facilities organization leads the Intelligence Community’s efforts to enhance the returns on investments in technology and facilities. Our mission is to catalyze the delivery of innovative, technology-based capabilities which solve intelligence challenges today and in the future. In partnership with our colleagues at Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity (IARPA), we take a portfolio approach to acquire capabilities now, to coordinate those that will come next, and to sponsor research that will lead to new capabilities after next.

AT&F has five primary mission areas: Acquisition, Facilities, Procurement, Science & Technology, and IARPA. The Acquisition Division works collaboratively with Intelligence Community partners to advance and support high quality Major Systems Acquisitions with an end goal of improving intelligence collection and analysis. The Facilities Division provides a holistic view of real property assets for the IC, including facilities planning, readiness, and infrastructure support. Procurement leads efforts to improve contracting and procurement activity and promote best practices and consistent policies across the IC. The Science and Technology Division champions S&T strategies, policies, and resource allocations that deliver mission superiority, and seeks to connect emerging S&T with mission needs. IARPA invests in high-risk, high-payoff research programs that have the potential to provide our nation with an overwhelming intelligence advantage over future adversaries.

Our work focuses on community-wide efforts designed to meet our collective needs today and into the future.  AT&F directs and coordinates the activities of several cross-Community groups:

  • Intelligence Community Acquisition Council
  • IC Procurement Executive Council
  • National Intelligence Science and  Technology Committee
  • Facilities Working Group
  • Supply Chain Management Working Group
  • Total Asset Management Working Group
