What We Do

First and foremost, the Directorate of Support (DS) is about enabling the intelligence mission. Our "mission first" approach ensures that all the directorates in the CIA, our partners across the Intelligence Community, and various other government agencies always have the support they need to meet whatever challenge they face.

Everyday, we work side-by-side with analysts, scientists, and operations officers around the globe. Bringing agility and innovation, DS officers provide the full range of both technical and non-technical support services, to include security, finance, logistics, IT, and much more.

From the frontlines to the back office, the support we provide touches all facets of intelligence operations. These services, along with the passion and commitment of DS officers, make the intelligence mission possible, any time, anywhere.
