CI and Security Advocacy

The National Counterintelligence and Security Center (NCSC) oversees the allocation of CI and security resources within the National Intelligence Program (NIP). It advocates for implementing CI and security programs that may not be directly funded by the NIP.

The NCSC utilizes the Intelligence Planning Programming, Budgeting, and Evaluation (IPPBE) system to shape and sustain intelligence capabilities. Through this system, the NIP is developed. The NIP encompasses resources and initiatives critical for intelligence operations.

The NCSC conducts mission reviews, assessing progress based on the implementation of the National Counterintelligence (CI) Strategy. Additionally, it evaluates the state of the mission, guided by the Unifying Intelligence Strategy for Counterintelligence. By identifying key intelligence gaps, the NCSC seeks to leverage existing CI capabilities before proposing new ones.

In summary, the NCSC’s strategic planning, resource allocation, and gap analysis contribute to effective counterintelligence efforts, ensuring the protection of U.S. interests and national security.
