Offices of CIA



The Directorate of Support (DS) provides global, agile, integrated and reliable support to our analysts, scientists, engineers and operations officers. Our offices represent the diverse skills necessary to ensure mission success.

Corporate Businesses

Finance officers serve as the focal point for Agency financial policies and practices. They formulate, implement, and maintain financial operations and reporting. They assist in budget preparation and provide resource management expertise to our customers; they often are forward-deployed to support the Agency’s global mission using unique financial tradecraft.

Facilities Management

Facilities officers play a critical role in creating and maintaining the Agency’s infrastructure, providing uninterrupted mission support. They are stewards of the Agency’s facilities, offering a breadth of services from space planning and real estate acquisitions to operations, maintenance, new construction and renovations.

Global Services

Global Services officers provide a full range of integrated global support services, including worldwide administrative and logistics services, supply chain management, travel services, publishing and transportation services for the Agency and the Intelligence Community. The men and women in this cadre have diverse skills and use innovative solutions to meet mission requirements.

Innovation and Integration

DS provides support to the CIA by fully integrating our wide range of support services. Mission integration officers manage cross-functional programs, leading projects that span multiple support business lines. The Office of Innovation and Integration also manages major DS field support platforms and builds support applications that enable our mission.

Medical Services

The men and women in the Office of Medical Services are dedicated to providing health, safety and other medical-related services to Agency officers around the globe. These medical professionals ensure that Agency officers are healthy and prepared, both physically and mentally, for the unique challenges they face. Like other DS officers, medical officers travel extensively to ensure that our programs are effective.

Personnel Resources

Human Resources (HR) officers are an essential part of the CIA support team. They are involved in the deployment of our officers, the full range of employee compensation and benefits, hiring, training and other key elements of workforce management. They work extensively with other HR professionals within the Intelligence Community and across the U.S. Government.


Security is an integral part of the CIA mission. Security officers protect our organization's people, mission, facilities and information. Security officers are involved in a wide range of activities, from the vetting of personnel for positions of trust with the Agency and access to sensitive information, to protecting our facilities and information systems.
