Strategic Communications - Who We Are

The Office of the Director of National Intelligence Strategic Communications (SC) serves as agency’s lead for all internal and external communications. SC develops communication strategies to help disseminate key messages to various audiences including members of the Intelligence Community, the internal ODNI workforce, members of the media, and the general public.

SC is led by the Assistant Director of National Intelligence for Strategic Communications, Timothy Barrett, and consists of three distinct areas: public affairs, internal communication, and multimedia. All components work in coordination to ensure that messages are consistent and are disseminated to the appropriate audience in a timely manner.
