National Counterterrorism Center

What We Do

National Counterterrorism Center Seal NCTC serves as the primary organization in the U.S. government for integrating and analyzing all intelligence pertaining to terrorism possessed or acquired by the U.S. government (except purely domestic terrorism); serves as the central and shared knowledge bank on terrorism information; and ensures that agencies receive all-source intelligence support needed to execute their counterterrorism plans or to perform independent, alternative analysis, and receive the intelligence needed to accomplish their assigned activities.

NCTC serves as the principal advisor to the DNI on intelligence operations and analysis relating to counterterrorism, advising the DNI on how well US intelligence activities, programs, and budget proposals for counterterrorism conform to priorities established by the President.

Unique among US agencies, NCTC serves as the primary organization responsible for strategic operational planning for counterterrorism. Operating under the policy direction of the President and the National Security Council, NCTC provides interagency planning and assessments of US strategic counterterrorism programs and activities.
