Calendar Year 2021


April 2022



Today, consistent with the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act of 1978 (FISA), as amended (codified in 50 U.S.C. § 1873(b)), and the Intelligence Community’s (IC) Principles of Intelligence Transparency, the Office of the Director of National Intelligence released the ninth annual Statistical Transparency Report Regarding Use of National Security Surveillance Authorities.


Published every year since 2014, the ASTR provides the public with statistics and contextual information regarding the scope of the government’s use of FISA authorities, National Security Letters, and other national security authorities. In conjunction with other publicly released material, this report adds insight into the rigorous and multi-layered oversight framework governing the IC that is designed to protect the privacy and civil liberties of persons whose information is acquired pursuant to these national security authorities.
