"The Intelligence Community Inspector General (IC IG) conducted this evaluation pursuant to the Reducing Over-Classification Act (ROCA), Public Law 111-258 (October 7, 2010). The ROCA states, '...the Inspector General of each department or agency of the United States with an officer or employee who is authorized to make original classifications, in consultation with the Information Security Oversight Office, shall carry out no less than two evaluations of that department or agency or a component of the department or agency - (A) to assess whether applicable classification policies, procedures, rules, and regulations have been adopted, followed, and effectively administered within such department, agency, or component; and, (B) to identify policies, procedures, rules, regulations, or management practices that may be contributing to persistent misclassification of material within such department, agency or component.' IC IG found no instances where classification was used to conceal violation of law, inefficiency, or administrative error; prevent embarrassment to a person, organization, or agency; restrain competition; or prevent or delay the release of information not requiring protection in the interest of national security. IC IG found the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) has adopted all applicable classification policies, procedures, rules, and regulations. However, some ODNI procedures and management practices require refinement to ensure full compliance with, and effective administration of, the prescribed standards and requirements."
