The IC has national centers that integrate and coordinate the activities of the entire IC, or in some cases, broader U.S. Government activities, Those overseen by ODNI are the National Counterterrorism Center (NCTC), the National Counterproliferation Center (NCPC), the National Counterintelligence and Security Center (NCSC), and the Cyber Threat Information Integration Center (CTIIC). Many agencies have internal mission centers that integrate and coordinate their agency’s efforts in a certain mission area, such as CIA’s Counterterrorism Mission Center and DIA’s regional centers.

ODNI Centers

The mission of the ODNI is to lead and support IC integration; delivering insights, driving capabilities, and investing in the future.


The ODNI is staffed by officers from across the IC and is organized into directorates, centers, and oversight offices that support the DNI’s role as head of the IC and manager of the National Intelligence Program (NIP).



The ODNI directorates -- Enterprise Capacity (EC), Mission Integration (MI), and Strategy and Engagement (S&E) -- are organized around ODNI core functions to provide a more holistic view and strategic approach to intelligence integration.


Enterprise Capacity strategically focuses the IC’s resource, workforce, systems, technology, and infrastructure to drive transformation outcomes at mission speed.


Mission Integration delivers strategic intelligence and distinctive insights and drives resource allocations for the nations Intelligence issues.


Strategy & Engagement sets the strategy and policy framework enabling the IC’s ability to deliver timely, accurate, relevant intelligence, support, and capabilities and stay ahead of opportunities and risks in the IC’s complex, challenging, global, and technological environment.

Mission Centers


In their roles as functional National Intelligence Managers (NIMs), the National Counterterrorism Center (NCTC), the National Counterproliferation Center (NCPC), and the National Counterintelligence and Security Center (NCSC) also contribute to the mission of intelligence integration. For both functional and regional NIMs, the Unifying Intelligence Strategies (UIS) are critical plans for communicating priorities and achieving intelligence integration. NIMs develop UIS in line with prioritized IC requirements and are charged with leading integration across the IC by function and region.



The DNI’s general and specific oversight functions and responsibilities are supported by the above ODNI Oversight offices (and, in the case of the IC IG, has statutory functions and responsibilities over the entire IC).
These Oversight offices ensure that the IC carries out its mission in a manner that protects privacy and civil liberties and enhances transparency; oversee equal opportunity and workforce diversity programs; conduct independent audits, investigations, inspections, and reviews; provide accurate legal guidance and counsel to ensure compliance with the Constitution, U.S. law, and corresponding regulations; and facilitate the DNI’s statutory responsibility to keep the appropriate Congressional committees informed of all intelligence activities of the U.S.
