Intelligence Oversight

Intelligence Oversight (IO)

"IO involves balancing two fundamental interests: collecting information required to protect national security and protecting the individual rights of U.S. persons (USPERs) as guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution and the laws of the U.S." -CNGBI 0700.01

Reporting Questionable Intelligence Activities (QIAs)

QIAs can be defined as conduct during or related to an intelligence activity that may violate law, Executive Order or Presidential Directive, applicable DOD policies, and/or NGB, Army and Air Force policy documents and instructions. Such activities include, but are not limited to, Tasking intelligence personnel to conduct intelligence activities that are not part of the organization's approved mission, even if they have the technical capability to do so; Providing intelligence services and/or products without proper authorization; Failure to file proper use statements for imagery collection associated with U.S. persons; Collecting information on U.S. persons, even through open source, when it is not part of the unit's mission. Those reporting a QIA are protected from reprisal or adverse actions associated with this reporting by anyone in their entire chain of command. While it is preferred you use your chain of command to report any QIAs, you may report possible QIAs to any of the following: your supervisor, intelligence oversight officer, commander, unit legal advisor (either the judge advocate general or general counsel), the inspector general, the Assistant to the Secretary of Defense for Intelligence Oversight, or the DoD General Counsel's office directly. You can find out more about QIAs on the Department of Defense Senior Intelligence Oversight Official Website.
