ABSTRACT

Producing Timely Tailored Finished Intelligence: Writing for the Consumer   [open pdf - 58KB]

It is the policy of the Director of Central Intelligence (DCI) that intelligence be "written for the consumer," allowing for the widest dissemination of timely, tailored intelligence possible. The policy of "writing for the consumer" must be consistent with the "need-to-know" principle and the requirement to protect sources and methods. The intelligence control markings established herein may only be used to identify and restrict dissemination of specific intelligence derived from sensitive sources and methods and signify that originator approval is required for additional dissemination or foreign release. Such control markings may only be used when an item of intelligence information cannot reasonably be protected by use of its classification markings alone, i.e., CONFIDENTIAL, SECRET, OR TOP SECRET. Senior Officials of the Intelligence Community (SOIC) will establish procedures to comply with this policy.
