Who We Are

Intelligence Integration - Who We Are

The Office of the Deputy Director of National Intelligence for Intelligence Integration (DDII) was established in October 2010 to work toward the Director of former National Intelligence James Clapper’s vision of a fully integrated Intelligence Community. In March 2017, Edward Gistaro became the Deputy DNI for Intelligence Integration.

Within DDII, regional and functional National Intelligence Managers (NIMs) develop Unifying Intelligence Strategies (UIS) for geographic and topic areas. These UIS serve as a roadmap to help the Intelligence Community work together on the highest-priority intelligence issues.

  • The  National Intelligence Management Council (NIMC) serves as the corporate coordination and administrative management staff for the NIMs. Appointed by the DNI, NIMs serve as the principal substantive advisors on all or specified aspects of intelligence related to designated countries, regions, topics, or functional areas. NIMs provide a single voice to policymakers to orient and guide collection and analytic activities to satisfy customers’ information needs.
  • The National Intelligence Council (NIC) serves as a bridge between the intelligence and policy communities, a source of deep substantive expertise on intelligence issues, and a facilitator of IC collaboration and outreach.
  • The President’s Daily Brief Staff (PDB) organizes the IC’s daily intelligence reporting to the President and cabinet members.
  • The Mission Integration Division (MID) works to leverage Intelligence Community analytic, collection and other capabilities to advance the priorities of the NIMs. Working with ODNI Enablers, Functional Managers and IC components, MID develops integrated efforts to address NIM mission and enterprise challenges, tackle identified intelligence gaps, and assess community progress against IC priorities.
