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
