FAS Project on Intelligence Reform

Corporate Information Retrieval and Storage [CIRAS]

The CIA Directorate of Intellitence Corporate Information Retrieval and Storage system [CIRAS] consolidates the diverse cable and all-source traffic into a more cost effective system built on commercially available software. It is the biggest change at CIA/DI since the 1986 introduction of the SAFE electronic cable processing system. DI still has a critical need to capitalize on ongoing research and development and improve search engines to help our analysts isolate, prioritize, and organize the information, but CIRAS provides a foundation for developing a corporate knowledge base.
