The Office of the Director of National Intelligence has commenced a 100-day transition period for the implementation of its transformation initiative following an agency-wide review effort.
Sue Gordon, principal deputy director of national intelligence, helped develop a plan to update ODNI’s organizational structure, processes and management system, ODNI said Thursday.
DNI Dan Coats said the plan is meant to drive the intelligence community on key issues and encourage the agency to prioritize investments and increase operational efficiency.
A transformation team sought input from IC personnel to determine ODNI’s strengths and weaknesses.
The group then identified four core functions to serve as the foundation for the agency’s new structure.
ODNI said those functions are intelligence integration; facilitation of national security partnerships; resolution of resource and capability decisions; and development of public engagement and IC strategies.
The agency plans to implement its transformation plan this summer and appoint a deputy director of national intelligence to oversee each function.
