Chief Information Officer

What We Do

Vision: An Integrated Intelligence Enterprise

Mission: To enable intelligence collection, analysis, and sharing through innovative, robust, and secure IT capabilities.

In 2012, the IC CIO embarked on the largest IT transformation in the history of the Intelligence Community. This transformation, guided by the IC Information Technology Enterprise (IC ITE) Strategy, is focused on enabling greater integration, information sharing, and information safeguarding through a common IC IT approach that substantially reduces costs. The IC ITE “officially opened for business” in August 2013.

The Office of the IC CIO provides strategic direction and oversight for the planning, assessing, implementing, and monitoring of IC ITE activities in support of the IC ITE vision of an “Integrated Intelligence Enterprise.”

The IC ITE Strategy 2016-2020 is focused on the three primary goals of IC ITE:

Goal 1: Enhance Intelligence Integration

Promote the Intelligence Community’s ability to integrate and unify intelligence activities by fully leveraging IC ITE.

Goal 2: Optimize Information Assurance to Secure and Safeguard the IC Enterprise

Enhance IC mission success through a trusted collaborative environment while protecting national intelligence information, sources, and methods, as well as privacy and civil liberties.

Goal 3: Operate as an Efficient, Effective IC Enterprise

Achieve an IC ITE operating model that employs common business practices and Community teams to deliver, adopt, and sustain shared enterprise services and capabilities across the IC.

The IC ITE represents a strategic shift from agency-centric information technology (IT) to a common enterprise platform where the IC can easily and securely share technology, information, and capabilities across the Community. To enable this change, the Director of National Intelligence (DNI), in consultation with the applicable IC element head, has designated IC elements as Service Providers, who assume the responsibility for developing and maintaining IC ITE services of common concern. IC ITE Services are the capabilities and shared solutions that are being delivered across the IC to help complete the vision of IC ITE. These services currently include: a common desktop environment; a joint cloud environment; an applications mail; an enterprise management capability; identification, authentication, and authorization capabilities; network requirements and engineering services; and a security coordination service.

Working with the IC under the IC ITE Strategy, the IC CIO is facilitating the development, implementation, and adoption of seamless and secure enterprise solutions that promote trusted collaboration – connecting people to people, people to data, and data to data. The strategy enhances the IC’s ability to securely discover, access, and share information across agencies and ultimately enables greater mission success.

IC ITE Implementation is an evolving process of consolidating and adopting Community capabilities. With the adoption of IC ITE Services, users will have broader and faster access to data and an increased ability to collaborate on common systems across the IC in ways that enhance mission integration and optimize mission success.

Who We Are

Congress passed the Intelligence Reform and Terrorism Prevention Act December 17, 2004, establishing the position of the Director of National Intelligence and the supporting Office of the DNI. Six days later, Congress established the Intelligence Community Chief Information Officer through the Intelligence Authorization Act of 2005, empowering the position with Community-wide authority over enterprise architecture. The act established four areas of IC CIO responsibility above and beyond those accorded to other federal-level CIOs through legislation.

  1. Manage activities relating to IC Information Technology infrastructure and Enterprise Architecture requirements.
  2. Exercise procurement approval authority over all IT items related to IC EA components.
  3. Direct/manage IC IT-related procurement.
  4. Ensure all expenditures for IT research and development are consistent with the IC EA and the DNI’s strategy for such architecture.

President Barack Obama appointed Dr. Raymond (Ray) Cook to the position of Assistant Director of National Intelligence and IC CIO on July 23, 2015. The IC CIO reports directly to the Director of National Intelligence.

The Office of the IC CIO is organized to respond to the mission, business, and technology needs of the Intelligence Community, ensuring IC collectors and analysts have the secure services and capabilities they need to effectively do their jobs. The Office of the IC CIO has four divisions:  Strategic Programs, Mission Engagement, Information Assurance, and Information Management.

Chief Management Officer

National Intelligence Emergency Management

National Intelligence Emergency Management (NIEMA) provides for the framework, platforms, and systems to enable the Director of National Intelligence to lead an integrated and resilient IC enterprise capable of sustaining the “intelligence cycle” under any crisis or consequence management event, both at our headquarters and at our alternate operating locations.

The National Intelligence Strategy (NIS) outlines that the United States Intelligence Community must constantly strive for and exhibit three characteristics essential to our effectiveness; Integration, Agility, and Exemplification of American values. NIEMA’s vision is to utilize these three characteristics to allow us to be the key enabler for integration, collaboration, coordination, and facilitation of the IC’s resiliency enterprise framework.

We are responsible for leading the intelligence community’s emergency capabilities in support of key national preparedness, response, and recovery, and mitigation efforts including the National Continuity System, The Nuclear Command and Control System, The National Response Framework, The IC Critical Infrastructure Program, and the National Exercise Program.
