The Office of Intelligence Policy and Review (OIPR) was a staff agency within the United States Department of Justice. It was responsible for handling all Justice Department requests for surveillance authorizations under the terms of the 1978 Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA), advising the Attorney General and Intelligence Community on legal issues relating to national security and surveillance, and intelligence legislation coordination.
The OIPR was amalgamated into the National Security Division created under Section 506 of the 2005 USA PATRIOT Act reauthorization, which was signed into law by President George W. Bush on March 9, 2006.
