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.
