Recognizing the need for intelligence support in all of the critical mission areas identified in the President’s National Strategy for Homeland Security and in direct support both of the DHS mission and all elements of the Department responsible for executing the Secretary’s authorities in fulfilling it, the Under Secretary for Intelligence & Analysis, as head of the DHS Office of Intelligence and Analysis (I&A), is responsible for carrying out the responsibilities of the Secretary relating to intelligence and information analysis across the Department and, as Chief Intelligence Officer of the Department, oversees the functional integration of the Department’s intelligence activities, including those occurring outside of I&A. Through successive and specific PO 00000 Frm 00031 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 delegations issued in 2006, the Under Secretary for I&A was assigned the authority and responsibility: (1) To perform the functions specified in Title II of the Homeland Security Act that relate to the Office of Information Analysis (since renamed I&A); (2) to exercise oversight and responsibility for the functions and duties necessary to lead and manage the integration of Departmental intelligence activities; and (3) to exercise the authority under section 202 of the Homeland Security Act to ensure the timely and efficient access to all information necessary to discharge the responsibilities under section 201 of the Homeland Security Act. Taken together, the Under Secretary for I&A exercises, through I&A, lead or, in some cases, shared leadership responsibility under the Homeland Security Act for the following: A. To access, receive, and analyze law enforcement, intelligence, and other information from federal, state, and local government agencies (including law enforcement agencies), and private sector entities, and to integrate such information, in support of the mission responsibilities of the Department and the functions of the National Counterterrorism Center established under section 119 of the National Security Act of 1947 (50 U.S.C. 404o), in order to: (A) Identify and assess the nature and scope of terrorist threats to the homeland; (B) detect and identify threats of terrorism against the United States; and (C) understand such threats in light of actual and potential vulnerabilities; B. To request additional information from other agencies of the federal government, state and local government agencies, and the private sector relating to threats of terrorism in the United States, or relating to other areas of responsibility assigned by the Secretary; C. To establish Department-wide procedures for the review and analysis of information provided by State, local, and tribal governments and the private sector, integrate such information into the information gathered by the Department and other departments and agencies of the Federal Government, as appropriate, and make available such information, as appropriate, within the Department and to other departments and agencies of the Federal Government; D.
