Alternate Title: NSAM 368: Intelligence Information Handling System
National Security Action Memorandum 368 tasked the Director of Central Intelligence to prepare a proposal for the "phased implementation of a community-wide information handling system to insure the secure and efficient dissemination, processing, storage and retrieval of intelligence information." The Director was charged with consulting with the President's Foreign Intelligence Advisory Board in the preparation of the report, which was to be submitted by mid-1968. The directive is signed by W. W. Rostow (Walt Whitman Rostow), economic historian who during his career was involved in foreign policy and political affairs, and became one of the leading advisers to Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara during the Vietnam War.
