Consolidate Analysis Across the IC

Combine and consolidate the various analytical components across the intelligence community (IC) by subject matter and put them all under one component, perhaps at CIA or the DNI. This would do more than eliminate redundancy, streamline the publishing process, and control the growing ranks of the analytic cadre. It would ensure that ALL information on a topic comes to one place and is thoroughly vetted and adequately ...more »

Privately-financed Security Clearances

Streamline Security Screening

The US government should establish one security screening process for all government employees. One of my colleagues this summer had a top secret clearance with one agency, and had to go through the entire security clearance process again to obtain a secret clearance with another agency.

Intelligence Agencies should Recruit Outside Expertise

I suggest that you open up the ranks of the intelligence community to more expert outsiders that could provide different views and perspective than those that have been in the community of decades. Currently, it is almost impossible to join an intelligence organization at a GS 14 or higher without essentially spending one's entire adult life within the intelligence community.
