The Intelligence Community Directive 301 establishes the roles and responsibilities of the Assistant Deputy DNI for Open Source (ADDNI/OS). The mission of the ADDNI/OS is
|“||[t]o enable all intelligence disciplines to provide timely, relevant and value-added insight to consumers via the National Open Source Enterprise.||”|
The vision of ADDNI/OS is
|“||[o]pen sources are routinely exploited in all intelligence disciplines, facilitated by innovative experts — but with every officer open source capable. Supporting technology is interoperable, and the availability of information resources is maximized by strong public-private relationships, information sharing best practices, and an agile requirements process."||”|
The values of ADDNI/OS are:
- Agility — the ability to respond quickly and effectively to any challenge or opportunity.
- Gestalt — the enterprise we build is greater than the sum of its parts.
- Excellence — in all our actions and activities, providing unparalleled support.
The ADDNI/OS established five goals for the National Open Source Enterprise:
- Source of First Resort. Open source is the source of first resort for all disciplines and the precursor for clandestine and technical collection.
- Guild. Our people are empowered by a guild of experts who champion the use of open sources, by universal training in open source exploitation, and by embedding open sources in the work of all disciplines.
- Global Input. Global input ensures the broadest range of information with relevant sourcing background is accessible to all consumers.
- Single Architecture. A single open source architecture provides optimum access to information — acquired once and shared with all.
- Open Source Works. A robust Skunk Works-like capability anticipates and capitalizes on emerging opportunities driving innovation in tradecraft, analysis and technology.
