DCIDs: Director of Central Intelligence Directives

Director of Central Intelligence Directives (DCIDs) were formerly the principal instrument for defining intelligence community-wide policies. Since the establishment and the appointment of the Director of National Intelligence in 2005, however, many DCIDs have been updated, modified, replaced or reissued by the DNI as Intelligence Community Directives (ICDs). DCIDs that have been publicly released include the following. Somewhat awkwardly, they are indexed by CIA in “old” (P) and “new” categories, as listed below.

Defense Department Intelligence and Security Doctrine, Directives and Instructions   – Details

Doctrine is the fundamental principles by which the military forces or elements thereof guide their actions in support of national objectives. It is authoritative but requires judgment in application. (Joint Pub 1-02) The joint publication hierarchy provides a framework for joint doctrine and joint tactics, techniques, and procedures. The organizational structure follows traditional joint staff lines of responsibility to the maximum degree possible. Each series provides for a keystone manual as the first publication in the series. The keystone manuals constitute the doctrinal foundation of the series. There are a number of online sources for joint doctrine and related publications.

Controlled Unclassified Information

Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) refers to unclassified information that is to be protected from public disclosure.

These documents were in part the basis for a documentary entitled “The Truth About the Okinawan Reversion After 25 Years: The Role of U.S. Bases as Shown in Classified Documents.” NHK-Japan Broadcasting aired the documentary on its “Close-Up: Gendai” news program on the evening of May 14th (JST).

U.S. State Department Advisory Committee on Historical Diplomatic Documentation   
The State Department Historical Advisory Committee oversees the preparation of the Foreign Relations of the United States (FRUS) series, the official historical record of U.S. foreign policy, which dates back to the Abraham Lincoln Administration. In particular, the Committee is obliged by statute (Public Law 102-138) to ensure that the FRUS series constitutes a “thorough, accurate, and reliable documentary record of major United States foreign policy decisions.” Inevitably, this statutory obligation brings the Committee into regular conflict with the tendency of certain agencies to resist declassification of their records. Such conflicts are reflected in many of the Committee documents presented below.

United States Citizenship and Immigration Forms  
U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) is the government agency that oversees lawful immigration to the United States. USCIS is funded primarily by immigration and naturalization benefit fees charged to applicants and petitioners. Fees collected from individuals or organizations filing immigration benefit requests are deposited into the Immigration Examinations Fee Account (IEFA). Congress created the IEFA in 1988, establishing the authority to recover the full cost of immigration benefit processing. This account represents approximately 95 percent of USCIS’ fiscal year (FY) 2016 total budget authority. The remaining budget authority comes from two other mandatory fee accounts and appropriated funding for the E-Verify program.
