CI and Security Advocacy


The IC uses the Intelligence Planning Programming, Budgeting, and Evaluation (IPPBE) system to effectively shape and sustain intelligence capabilities through the development of the National Intelligence Program (NIP).  NCSC oversees the CI and security NIP resources and advocates for our Federal Partners to implement CI and security programs not funded by the NIP.


Through mission reviews, based on the implementation of the National CI Strategy and the state-of-the-mission, based on the Unifying Intelligence Strategy for CI, NCSC assesses progress toward closing key intelligence gaps and finds ways to leverage existing CI capabilities before proposing new ones.
