The Office of Intelligence and Analysis (I&A) is an intelligence agency within the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and one of seventeen agencies in the United States Intelligence Community (IC). I&A is led by the Under Secretary for Intelligence and Analysis, a senate-confirmed position that also serves as the Chief Intelligence Officer for DHS.

Overview[edit]

DHS and I&A were established in the wake of the September 11th attacks to address some of the fundamental national security challenges and information sharing gaps identified by the 9/11 Commission. I&A was originally established by the Homeland Security Act of 2002[1] as the Directorate for Information Analysis and Infrastructure Protection. It was not until the Implementing Recommendations of the 9/11 Commission Act of 2007[2] that I&A was formally created as the first federal agency statutorily mandated to share information at the state and local level.
