Office of the Director of National Intelligence

The Director of National Intelligence (DNI) serves as the head of the U.S. Intelligence Community, overseeing and directing the implementation of the National Intelligence Program (NIP). The DNI also acts as the principal advisor to the president, the National Security Council, and the Homeland Security Council for intelligence matters related to national security. The president appoints the DNI with the advice and consent of the Senate.

The Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) is staffed by officers from across the IC and is organized into component offices. These offices fall under three main areas of focus: Core Mission, Enablers, and Oversight. Internal staff offices execute the administrative functions of the ODNI, including management of the ODNI Program within the NIP.
