This is the first in a series – please check back soon for additional fact sheets on Section 702, FISA, the USA Freedom Act, and CLPT.

This is part of the broader, multi-layered framework of U.S. rules and oversight, designed to ensure that we exercise our authorities and use our capabilities properly. This “IC Governance Framework” establishes a set of rules that the IC follows as it conducts its activities, ensuring that we uphold our duties to the Constitution.

Transparency 

 
The Principles of Intelligence Transparency for the Intelligence Community are intended to facilitate IC decisions on making information publicly available in a manner that enhances public understanding of intelligence activities, while continuing to protect information when disclosure would harm national security.

These Principles do not modify or supersede applicable laws, executive orders, and directives, including Executive Order 13526, Classified National Security Information. Instead, they articulate the general norms that elements of the IC should follow in implementing those authorities and requirements.

On October 27, 2015, the Office of the Director of National Intelligence published the implementation plan for the Principles of Intelligence Transparency for the Intelligence Community. The implementation plan sets intelligence community priorities for transparency, translating the principles into concrete, measurable initiatives.

Below are several useful documents related to the Transparency initiative:

ODNI’s Office of Civil Liberties, Privacy and Transparency (CLPT) created this “transparency tracker” document to track, categorize, and chart the information being released to the public on IC on the Record for the purpose of assisting the public in identifying and retrieving relevant information, facilitating research, and gauging the effectiveness of the IC’s transparency efforts since August 2013. Because IC on the Record is an important public outreach tool for the IC, analyzing the amount and types of information publicly released on IC on the Record provides a helpful and comprehensive way to assess the IC’s progress in enhancing transparency. Specifically, this transparency tracker consists of a series of statistical summary charts followed by a detailed index of documents.
