"This Intelligence Community (IC) Directive establishes the IC Analytic Standards that govern the production and evaluation of national intelligence analysis. It also delineates the associated authorities and responsibilities of the Office of Analytic Integrity and Standards (AIS) under the Deputy Director of National Intelligence for Analysis (DDNI/A). It directs the DDNI/A to ensure the effective implementation of this policy collaboratively with the Heads of all elements of the IC Directors of Analysis, and all IC education and training program directors, in coordination with the Assistant Deputy Director of National Intelligence for Education and Training (ADDNI/E&T). The IC Analytic Standards articulate the mission and commitment of all analytic elements of the IC to meet the highest standards of integrity and rigorous analytic thinking. The standards act as guidelines and goals for analysts and managers throughout the IC who strive for excellence in their analytic work practices and products. 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 Director of National Intelligence (DNI) and the head of the department or agency concerned, as an element of the IC."
