The purpose and applicability of this standard is as follows: "This capstone Intelligence Community (IC) Directive (ICD) sets forth the overarching policy and framework for the Director of National Intelligence's (DNI) approach to national intelligence and delineates the authorities and responsibilities of the DNI and the Office of the DNI (ODNI). It also establishes a system of ICDs, IC Policy Memoranda (ICPMs), and IC Policy Guidance (ICPGs) for managing the IC. Terms used in this directive are defined in Annex A. This ICD rescinds all versions of Director of Central Intelligence Directive (DCID) 1/1 and DCID 3/3P. This directive applies to the IC, as defined by the National Security Act of 1947, as amended, and other departments or agencies that may be designated by the President, or designated jointly by the DNI and the head of the department or agency concerned, as an element of the IC."
