                network or classified information develops and operates 
                a security plan that is consistent with standards

for investigating persons who are proposed for access to classified 
information and adjudicating whether such persons satisfy the criteria 
for obtaining and retaining access to such information.
  (b) Contents of Analysis.--In conducting the analysis required by 
subsection (a), the Director of National Intelligence shall evaluate 
the costs and benefits associated with--
          (1) the elimination of manual processes in security clearance 
        investigations and adjudications, if possible, and automating 
        and integrating the elements of the investigation process, 
        including--
                  (A) the clearance application process;
                  (B) case management;
                  (C) adjudication management;
                  (D) investigation methods for the collection, 
                analysis, storage, retrieval, and transfer of data and 
                records; and
                  (E) records management for access and eligibility 
                determinations;
          (2) the elimination or reduction, if possible, of the use of 
        databases and information sources that cannot be accessed and 
        processed automatically electronically, or modification of such 
        databases and information sources, to enable electronic access 
        and processing;
          (3) the use of government-developed and commercial technology 
        for continuous monitoring and evaluation of government and 
        commercial data sources that can identify and flag information 
        pertinent to adjudication guidelines and eligibility 
        determinations;
          (4) the standardization of forms used for routine reporting 
        required of cleared personnel (such as travel, foreign 
        contacts, and financial disclosures) and use of continuous 
        monitoring technology to access databases containing such 
        reportable information to independently obtain and analyze 
        reportable data and events;
          (5) the establishment of an authoritative central repository 
        of personnel security information that is accessible 
        electronically at multiple levels of classification and 
        eliminates technical barriers to rapid access to information 
        necessary for eligibility determinations and reciprocal 
        recognition thereof;
          (6) using digitally processed fingerprints, as a substitute 
        for ink or paper prints, to reduce error rates and improve 
        portability of data;
          (7) expanding the use of technology to improve an applicant's 
        ability to discover the status of a pending security clearance 
        application or reinvestigation; and
          (8) using government and publicly available commercial data 
        sources, including social media, that provide independent 
        information pertinent to adjudication guidelines to improve 
        quality and timeliness, and reduce costs, of investigations and 
        reinvestigations.
  (c) Report to Congress.--Not later than 6 months after the date of 
the enactment of this Act, the Director of National Intelligence shall

States.

                Classified Annexes and Committee Intent

    The classified annexes to this report include the 
classified schedules of authorizations and their associated 
explanatory language. The Committee views the classified 
annexes as integral parts of this legislation. The classified 
annexes contain thorough discussions of the issues considered 
by the Committee underlying the funding authorizations found in 
the classified schedules of authorizations. The Committee 
expects that all intelligence programs discussed in the 
classified annexes to this report will follow the guidance and 
limitations set forth as associated language therein. The 
classified schedules of authorizations are incorporated 
directly into this legislation by virtue of section 102 of the 
bill. The classified annexes are available for review by all 
Members of the House of Representatives, subject to the 
requirements of clause 13 of rule XXIII of the Rules of the 
House of Representatives and rule 14 of the Rules of Procedure 
for the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence.

                       Scope of Committee Review

    The bill authorizes U.S. intelligence and intelligence-
related activities within the jurisdiction of the Committee, 
including the National Intelligence Program (NIP) and the 
Military Intelligence Program (MIP). The NIP consists of all 
activities of the Office of the Director of National 
Intelligence, as well as those intelligence, intelligence-
related, and counterintelligence activities conducted by: the 
Central Intelligence Agency; the Department of Defense; the 
Defense Intelligence Agency; the National Security Agency; the 
National Reconnaissance Office; the National Geospatial-
Intelligence Agency; the Departments of the Army, Navy, and Air 
Force; the Department of State; the Department of the Treasury; 
the Department of Energy; the Department of Justice; the 
Federal Bureau of Investigation; the U.S. Coast Guard; the 
Department of Homeland Security; and the Drug Enforcement 
Administration. The Committee has exclusive legislative, 
authorizing, and oversight jurisdiction of these programs.

                     Committee Statement and Views

    The Fiscal Years 2014 and 2015 intelligence authorization 
bill funds all U.S. intelligence activities, spanning 16 
separate agencies. It provides authorization for critical 
national security functions, including: CIA personnel and their 
activities worldwide; tactical intelligence support to combat 
units in Afghanistan; NSA's electronic surveillance and cyber 
defense; global monitoring of foreign militaries, weapons 
tests, and arms control treaties, including use of satellites 
and radars; real-time analysis and reporting on political and 
economic events, such as current events in the Middle East and 
Eastern Europe; and research and technology to maintain the 
country's technological edge.
    This bill sustains today's intelligence capabilities and 
provides for future capabilities while staying within the 
funding constraints of the Budget Control Act. For Fiscal Year 
2014, the bill authorizes funding that is slightly below the 
President's budget request level. Its funding levels are in 
line with the levels appropriated by the enacted appropriations 
act for the National Intelligence Program and with the National 
Defense Authorization Act for the Military Intelligence 
Program.
    For Fiscal Year 2015, the bill increases the President's 
budget request by less than one percent. This overall increase, 
set off by efficiencies the Committee identified, reflects the 
Committee's concern that the President's request does not fund 
a number of important initiatives and leaves several 
unacceptable shortfalls. In the absence of an Administration 
request for Fiscal Year 2015 Overseas Contingency Operations 
funding, the bill authorizes the Committee's conservative 
estimate of the amount that will be required.
    The Committee's concerns about insufficient intelligence 
funding are only heightened for Fiscal Year 2016 and beyond, 
when post-sequester funding levels are due to resume. These 
concerns are exacerbated by the great expense necessary to 
remediate the damage from illegal disclosures of classified 
information.
    As most of the intelligence budget involves highly 
classified programs, the bulk of this Committee's 
recommendations each year are found in the classified annexes 
to the bill. Among other initiatives, the bill increases 
funding to address insider threats and improve personnel 
security programs. The classified annexes also include a five-
point budget framework to: (1) curb personnel growth; (2) find 
major operating efficiencies; (3) make only the best value 
investments; (4) deliver acquisitions on cost and on schedule; 
and (5) protect research and technology.
    The legislative provisions are comprised of changes to 
statute that better enable the Community to conduct its 
important mission and strengthen oversight mechanisms where 
needed.

Personnel and Information Security Reforms

    Over the past year, massive unauthorized disclosures of 
classified information caused immense damage to our national 
security. The Intelligence Community might have been able to 
prevent those unauthorized disclosures if it continuously 
evaluated the backgrounds of employees and contractors and if 
IC elements had more effectively shared potentially derogatory 
information about employees and contractors with each other.
    Section 501 of the bill requires the Director of National 
Intelligence to ensure that all IC elements continuously 
determine whether their employees and contractors are eligible 
for access to classified information. Continuous evaluation 
allows the IC to take advantage of lawfully available 
government and public information to detect warning signals 
that the current system of five-year periodic reinvestigation 
misses. That information may include: foreign travel; reports 
of foreign contacts; financial disclosure information; checks 
of criminal, commercial marketing, and credit databases; and 
other appropriate publicly available information. By adopting 
continuous evaluation, a smaller number of cause-based and 
random reinvestigations can supplement and, over the long-term, 
replace, arbitrary periodic reinvestigations in the IC.
    An effective continuous evaluation system also requires 
different elements of the IC to share information with each 
other in a timely fashion. Section 501 therefore also directs 
the DNI to develop procedures that require IC elements to share 
information that may impact the eligibility of employees or 
contractors for a security clearance with each other.
    Contractors pose a unique information security challenge 
for the IC. Section 502 of the bill addresses that challenge by 
requiring the DNI to ensure that all IC contractors with access 
to classified information develop and operate security plans 
that meet the DNI's information security standards. Compliance 
with this requirement will not be left to chance: Going 
forward, every contract that an IC element signs must contain a 
clause requiring the contractor to abide by the DNI's 
standards. Under Section 502, the DNI must also ensure that IC 
contractors with access to classified networks follow the IC's 
insider threat detection policies.

Declassification of bin Laden documents

    Section 312 of the bill requires the DNI to conduct a 
declassification review of certain documents collected in the 
May 2011 Abbottabad, Pakistan, mission that killed Osama bin 
Laden. That seminal moment in American history created an 
opportunity to improve public understanding of the threat al-
Qaeda and its affiliates pose to the United States without 
harming national security. The cache of documents at bin 
Laden's compound can help the public understand the state of 
al-Qaeda in 2011, including the group's relationship to 
Pakistan and Iran, its role in past terror plots, and the 
strategic threat to the United States and its allies. Section 
312 therefore requires the DNI to conduct a declassification 
review and make public documents that are not central to 
current intelligence operations, sources, methods, potential 
criminal investigations, or other national security interests. 
The bill also requires the DNI to brief the Committee about 
this effort and to explain why any of the documents must remain 
classified.

                 Oversight Findings and Recommendations

    With respect to clause 3(c)(1) of rule XIII of the Rules of 
the House of Representatives, the Committee held multiple 
hearings on the classified budgetary issues raised by H.R. 
4681. The bill, as reported by the Committee, reflects 
conclusions reached by the Committee in light of this oversight 
activity.

                General Performance Goals and Objectives

    The goals and objectives of H.R. 4681 are to authorize the 
intelligence and intelligence-related activities of the United 
States Government for Fiscal Years 2014 and 2015. These 
activities enhance the national security of the United States, 
support and assist the armed forces of the United States, and 
support the President in the execution of the foreign policy of 
the United States.
    The classified annexes that accompany this report reflects 
in great detail the Committee's specific performance goals and 
objectives at the programmatic level with respect to classified 
programs.

                       Unfunded Mandate Statement

    Section 423 of the Congressional Budget and Impoundment 
Control Act (as amended by Section 101(a)(2) of the Unfunded 
Mandates Reform Act, P.L. 104-4) requires a statement of 
whether the provisions of the reported bill include unfunded 
mandates. In compliance with this requirement, the Committee 
has received a letter from the Congressional Budget Office 
included herein.

                                     U.S. Congress,
                               Congressional Budget Office,
                                      Washington, DC, May 23, 2014.
Hon. Mike Rogers,
Chairman, Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence,
House of Representatives, Washington, DC.
    Dear Mr. Chairman: The Congressional Budget Office has 
prepared the enclosed cost estimate for H.R. 4681, the 
Intelligence Authorization Act for Fiscal Years 2014 and 2015.
    If you wish further details on this estimate, we will be 
pleased to provide them. The CBO staff contact is Jason 
Wheelock.
            Sincerely,
                                      Douglas W. Elmendorf,
                                                          Director.
    Enclosure.

H.R. 4681--Intelligence Authorization Act for Fiscal Years 2014 and 
        2015

    H.R. 4681 would authorize appropriations for fiscal years 
2014 and 2015 for intelligence activities of the U.S. 
government. Since CBO does not provide estimates for classified 
programs, this estimate addresses only the unclassified aspects 
of the bill. On that limited basis, CBO estimates that 
implementing H.R. 4681 would cost about $500 million over the 
2015-2019 period, subject to the appropriation of the specified 
and estimated amounts.
    Section 104 would authorize appropriations of $528 million 
and $505 million for fiscal years 2014 and 2015, respectively, 
for the Intelligence Community Management Account (ICMA). The 
ICMA provides the principal source of funding for the Office of 
the Director of National Intelligence and resources for 
managing the intelligence agencies. Because CBO anticipates 
that the bill would be enacted near the start of fiscal year 
2015, we estimate that this provision would not affect spending 
in 2014. However, assuming the appropriation of the amount 
authorized for fiscal year 2015, CBO estimates that 
implementing section 104 would cost about $330 million in 
fiscal year 2015 and about $500 million over the 2015-2019 
period.
    Section 603 would extend through 2018 the authorization for 
the Public Interest Declassification Board. The board advises 
the President on the government's standards and procedures for 
releasing and declassifying information. Based on information 
from the National Archives, CBO estimates that implementing 
this provision would cost less than $500,000 over the 2015-2019 
period.
    Enacting H.R 4681 would not affect direct spending or 
revenues; therefore, pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply. 
Section 201 would authorize the appropriation of $514 million 
for the Central Intelligence Agency Retirement and Disability 
System for both fiscal years 2014 and 2015 (CIARDS). 
Appropriations to CIARDS are considered mandatory and fund 
various unfunded liabilities of the system. However, because 
the amounts authorized are the same as the amounts projected in 
the CBO baseline, CBO does not ascribe any additional cost to 
this provision.
    H.R. 4681 contains no intergovernmental or private-sector 
mandates as defined in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act and 
would not affect the budgets of state, local, or tribal 
governments.
    On February 5, 2014, CBO transmitted a cost estimate for S. 
1681, the Intelligence Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2014, 
as reported by the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence on 
November 12, 2013. S. 1681 would authorize the appropriation of 
$569 million for fiscal year 2014, or $41 million more than the 
amount authorized in H.R. 4681. However, unlike our estimate 
for S. 1681, CBO does not ascribe any cost to that 
authorization because we expect that H.R. 4681 would not be 
enacted until near the start of fiscal year 2015. Other 
differences in the estimated costs of S. 1681 and H.R. 4681 
reflect differences between the two bills.
    The CBO staff contact for this estimate is Jason Wheelock. 
The estimate was approved by Theresa Gullo, Deputy Assistant 
Director for Budget Analysis.

                             MINORITY VIEWS

    The Intelligence Committee advanced the bipartisan 
Intelligence Authorization Act for Fiscal Years 2014 and 2015 
by voice vote.
    The annual Intelligence Authorization Act is among the most 
important bills the House passes each year. It provides U.S. 
intelligence professionals with the resources, capabilities and 
authorities they need to protect the nation, while ensuring 
that the Intelligence Committee can continue to conduct 
rigorous oversight of even the most sensitive programs on 
behalf of the American people.
    The Intelligence Authorization Act for Fiscal Years 2014 
and 2015 is a prudent and fiscally responsible bill. The Fiscal 
Year 2014 schedule of authorizations, which the Committee 
approved in November 2013, was included in this bill, as was 
the Fiscal Year 2015 schedule. The latter provides for overall 
funding at about 1% above the President's budget request, but 
it makes cuts to some less productive programs, adds money to 
other critically important programs, and ultimately 
acknowledges the need to right the ship after sequestration.
    Furthermore, the Intelligence Authorization Act:
          a. Continues to emphasize the value of persistence in 
        overhead architecture;
          b. Scales back the Intelligence Community's use of 
        core contractors;
          c. Pushes for further improvements in the continuous 
        evaluation of insider threats, and for the expansion of 
        insider threat programs government wide;
          d. Provides forward-looking funding for Navy airborne 
        Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance to 
        maintain military intelligence capabilities during the 
        transition from older to newer, more capable aircraft; 
        and
          e. Invests in both the recruitment and retention of 
        the best and brightest for our cyber workforce, 
        particularly in the FBI.
    One of the bill's weaknesses is that it does not do enough 
to enhance analysis of the national security implications of 
climate change, which the Intelligence Community refers to as 
environmental indications and warning. Whether by driving 
competition for scare resources, by opening the Arctic, or by 
increasing sea level and storm surge near our naval 
installations, climate change will have profound, destabilizing 
effects which need to be understood, anticipated, and accounted 
for. There may be disagreement about the causes of climate 
change, but the national security consequences are so 
significant that they cannot be ignored.
    The Intelligence Committee again succeeded in operating in 
a bipartisan manner, which was evident through this 
legislation. Minority Members offered important amendments that 
were incorporated into the Chairman's mark, including:
          a. Mr. Thompson's amendment to require an 
        intelligence assessment on the security of domestic oil 
        refineries and their related rail networks;
          b. Mr. Himes' amendment to establish an independent 
        Inspector General for the National Security Agency and 
        his amendment to require an annual report of all 
        violations of law or Executive Order determined to have 
        occurred within the Intelligence Community; and
          c. Mr. Thompson's amendment within the Annex to 
        direct the Director of National Intelligence to provide 
        an assessment of the status of threat information 
        sharing with diplomatic security personnel.
    Ms. Sewell was also influential in the inclusion within the 
Annex of the Chairman's mark of a provision to improve and 
standardize certain aspects of the security clearance process. 
Additionally, the Annex to the Chairman's mark included a 
provision at the behest of Mr. Langevin to require an 
assessment of the effects and costs of the leaks caused by a 
former NSA contractor. The Chairman also agreed to work with 
Mr. Langevin to conduct a study of the effectiveness of the 
reforms created ten years ago by the Intelligence Reform and 
Terrorism Prevention Act of 2004.
    Ms. Schakowsky introduced an amendment that would have 
banned the practice of so-called signature strikes; but it did 
not pass. While Ms. Schakowsky approved of most of the Act, she 
voted against it primarily because of her opposition to these 
so-called signature strikes.
    This Act contains no reforms to the Foreign Intelligence 
Surveillance Act because the Committee worked closely with the 
Judiciary Committee and the Administration to craft the USA 
FREEDOM Act, which passed the House the same day as the 
Intelligence Authorization Act's mark up.
