House Report 109-89 on HR 1815
SECTION 932--COMPREHENSIVE INVENTORY OF DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE INTELLIGENCE AND INTELLIGENCE-RELATED PROGRAMS AND PROJECTSThis section would require the Secretary of Defense to submit a report to the Senate Committee on Armed Services and the House Committee on Armed Services, and the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence and the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence that provides a comprehensive inventory of Department of Defense (DOD) intelligence and intelligence-related programs and projects. The committee notes that the Department is working with the Intelligence Community to provide greater visibility into those intelligence-related programs funded within the Department. The committee understands that Department initiatives currently underway to develop a Military Intelligence Program (MIP) will provide greater visibility for congressional committees with oversight responsibility for defense intelligence. The committee believes that it does not have complete visibility into some defense intelligence programs that do not clearly fall into the Joint Military Intelligence Program (JMIP) or under the Tactical Intelligence and Related Activities (TIARA) categories. Specifically, the committee notes that individual services may have intelligence or intelligence-related programs such as science and technology projects or information operations programs related to defense intelligence that are embedded in other service budget line items. Greater transparency into these programs and projects will enhance congressional oversight and permit identification of potentially duplicative programs in other services. The committee directs the Secretary of Defense, in consultation with the Director of National Intelligence, where appropriate, to provide to the appropriate congressional committees a comprehensive inventory of Department of Defense intelligence and intelligence-related programs and projects. It is not intended that this inventory encompass military operations or military activities. This inventory shall abide by existing procedures for the handling of special access programs referenced in section 119 of title 10, United States Code, and applicable Department of Defense directives.
