Who We Are
The Office of the Deputy Director of National Intelligence for Intelligence Integration (DDII) was established in October 2010 to work toward the Director of National Intelligence James Clapper’s vision of a fully integrated Intelligence Community. In August 2014 Mr. Michael P. Dempsey became the Deputy Director for Intelligence Integration, having previously served as Assistant Deputy Director for Intelligence Integration.
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.
- The National Intelligence Management Council (NIMC) serves as the corporate coordination and administrative management staff for the National Intelligence Managers (NIM). Appointed by the DNI, NIMs serve as the principal substantive advisors on all or specified aspects of intelligence related to designated countries, regions, topics, or functional areas. NIMs provide a single voice to policymakers to orient and guide collection and analytic activities to satisfy customers’ information needs.
- The National Intelligence Council (NIC) serves as a bridge between the intelligence and policy communities, a source of deep substantive expertise on intelligence issues, and a facilitator of IC collaboration and outreach.
- The President’s Daily Briefing Staff (PDB) organizes the IC’s daily intelligence reporting to the President and cabinet members.
- The Mission Integration Division (MID) works to leverage Intelligence Community analytic, collection and other capabilities to advance the priorities of the NIMs. Working with ODNI Enablers, Functional Managers and IC components, MID develops integrated efforts to address NIM mission and enterprise challenges, tackle identified intelligence gaps, and assess community progress against IC priorities.
