STRATEGIC VISION 2012-2017: One Mission · One Team · One Agency


Start: 2012-10-01, End: 2017-10-30, Publication: 2013-03-26


The DS Strategic Vision describes goals that are thoughtful, actionable, and measureable. They lead to outcomes that help address defense intelligence community concerns and fulfill the DS mission. DS must now translate these strategic goals into initiatives, plans, and capabilities. Decisions about budgeting, programs, operations, and acquisition will reflect the direction provided by the DS Strategic Vision.

Ultimately, DS will establish the OSE that hosts multiple levels of classified information. DS will also be able to define and designate defense intelligence IT as a weapons system, enabling DS to meet policymakers' and warfighters' evolving needs and continue to defend our nation. Through its technical capacity and dedication to its customers, DS will enable DoDIIS to securely share information in order to be agile and responsive to the full spectrum of threats and preserve America's intelligence technology advantage.
