National Intelligence Council

Who We Are

National Intelligence Council SealThe National Intelligence Council supports the Director of National Intelligence in his role as head of the Intelligence Community (IC) and is the IC’s center for long-term strategic analysis.

Since its establishment in 1979, the NIC has served as a bridge between the intelligence and policy communities, a source of deep substantive expertise on intelligence issues, and a facilitator of Intelligence Community collaboration and outreach.

The NIC’s National Intelligence Officers — drawn from government, academia, and the private sector—are the Intelligence Community’s senior experts on a range of regional and functional issues.

Acquisition, Technology, & Facilities - What We Do

Monday, April 09, 2012

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 deliver innovative, technology-based capabilities which solve intelligence challenges today and in the future. AT&F takes 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.

In particular AT&F’s activities:

  • Provide continuous oversight of selected NIP acquisitions and independently assess the status of IC acquisitions and associated IC acquisition processes.
  • Enable a Community-wide perspective to be incorporated throughout the acquisition cycle and effectively integrate IC acquisition and procurement initiatives to respond to the highest priority needs and missions.
  • Champion S&T strategies and policies, inform future IC R&D investments that deliver mission superiority, and seek out the intersections between IC mission needs and the capabilities offered by emerging S&T.
  • Coordinate IC facilities activities to address and resolve priority and strategic facility issues, and to optimize investment decisions.
  • Invest across four scientific thrust areas: Anticipatory Intelligence, Analysis, Collections and Operations.

In-STeP: The Intelligence Science & Technology Partnership

In-STeP LogoStrong, if often quiet, partnerships between the US private- and public-sectors remain the cornerstone of ensuring an overwhelming intelligence advantage for our nation’s decision makers and warfighters. In-STeP is designed to empower the IC S&T enterprise and its partners to properly inform investment decisions by ensuring additional synergy in intelligence-related research efforts.

Adoption and implementation of In-STeP will be critical for aligning IC S&T enterprise and partners’ pursuits with future intelligence and broader national security needs.
