Some New Intelligence Community Directives

01.24.07 | 1 min read | Text by Steven Aftergood

Several recent Intelligence Community Directives (ICDs) were released by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence on January 22 in response to a Freedom of Information Act request from the Federation of American Scientists.

Though mostly dry and uninformative, they are nevertheless important as expressions of bureaucratic definition and control.

The newly released directives include (all pdf):

ICD 105, “Acquisition,” August 15, 2006

ICD 300, “Management, Integration, and Oversight of Intelligence Collection and Covert Action,” October 3, 2006

ICD 602, “Human Capital — Intelligence Community Critical Pay Positions,” August 16, 2006

ICD 900, “Mission Management,”December 21, 2006
