What We Do
The Central Intelligence Agency is obligated by law to keep congressional committees charged with intelligence oversight fully and currently informed of intelligence activities. Congressional oversight committees include:
- Senate Select Committee on Intelligence (SSCI)
- House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI)
- Defense Subcommittee of the Senate Appropriations Committee (SAC/D)
- Defense Subcommittee of the House Appropriations Committee (HAC/D)
Agency Officers routinely brief several other committees with national security portfolios. These include Senate Armed Services Committee, House Armed Services Committee, Senate Foreign Relations Committee and House Foreign Affairs Committee.
