The Defense Department and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence have separately submitted proposed budget appropriations for their respective intelligence programs in fiscal year 2018.

DoD said Monday it seeks a top-line 2018 budget of $20.7 billion, including both base and overseas contingency operations spending, for the Military Intelligence Program.

ODNI’s request calls for $57.7 billion to fund the National Intelligence Program in the next fiscal year, the agency also noted Monday.
