Overview[edit | edit source]
The National Security Act of 1947, as amended, establishes the Joint Intelligence Community Council (JICC), which consists of the Director of National Intelligence (DNI) (chair), Secretary of State, Secretary of the Treasury, Secretary of Defense, U.S. Attorney General, Secretary of Energy, and Secretary of Homeland Security.
The JICC advises the DNI on establishing requirements, developing budgets, and managing financial matters; assists the DNI in monitoring and evaluating the performance of the Intelligence Community (IC); and ensures the timely execution of programs, policies, and directives established or developed by the DNI.
The JICC is the most senior executive body for managing the IC. It typically meets semi-annually.
