The National Intelligence Strategy of the United States of America

In support of the National Security Strategy, which sets forth national security priorities, the National Intelligence Strategy (NIS) provides the IC with the mission direction of the Director of National Intelligence (DNI) for the next four to five years. IC activities must be consistent with, and responsive to, national security priorities and must comply with the Constitution, applicable statutes, and Congressional oversight requirements. The NIS should be read along with the National Intelligence Priorities Framework and Unifying Intelligence Strategies to inform and guide mission, as well as planning, programming, and budgeting activities.

The NIS has four main components, described as follows: (1) the Strategic Environment section portrays the global national security milieu; (2) the Mission Objective section describes key mission priorities and expected outcomes; (3) the Enterprise Objective section describes resource and capability outcomes needed to enable mission success; and (4) the Implementing the Strategy section provides broad organizational guidance to meet the NIS’s requirements.

Our success as a Community is measured as much by our defense of America’s values as it is by the execution of our intelligence mission. What follows is a succinct depiction of the IC’s Mission and Vision, which serves as the foundation for the Mission and Enterprise Objectives.
