The 2014 National Intelligence Strategy (NIS) was announced Sept. 18 by Director of National Intelligence (DNI) James R. Clapper.
The document outlines the 17 Intelligence Community sections’ priorities in the U.S. for the next four years. Mission and enterprise objectives, along with principles of professional ethics, were also included.
“Intelligence integration is a journey, not an end state, and The National Intelligence Strategy is another way to promote the integration of the 17 Intelligence Community components, which has been my major theme for the past four years,” Clapper said. “I believe it’s the reason my post and office exists, and it’s what the 9/11 Commission advocated and IRTPA legislated.”
The strategic environment, priorities and objectives, and resources on current and future budgets, acquisitions and operations decisions are all mentioned in the NIS. It also expands on the successes that have been achieved since the previous NIS was published.
