The planning for the coordination of the activities relating to national security of intelligence agencies under the National Intelligence. Authority has been started. However, the initial over-all survey will require many months and the resulting decisions cannot be implemented for an appre- ciable period thereafter. Meanwhile, it appears essential to ensure that existing intelligence agencies are not weakened materially prior to the effecting of the initial coordination. 4. Pursuant to the above directives and authorizations, the entral Planning Staff of the Central Intelligence Group will undertake immediately an interim broad survey of the exist:Lnf intelligence agencies under the National Intelligence Authori*ty in order to determine the following: a. Are the present intelligence facilities of each such agency adequate for carrying out its responsibilities as related to the national security. b. Is any change contemplated which will affect the adequacy of present intelligence facilities prior to the initial coordination of their activities by the National Intelligence Authority. c. Is any interim action required as a result of the findings of ' a and b above. 5. It is requested that each member of the Intelligence Advisory Board designate a representative to arrange details with the Central Planning Staff and to furnish the Central Intelligence Group a list of personnel authorized to give information for. ,purposes of this survey. 6. The Central Planning Staff will submit its findings, conclusions, and rec0nmendattons to til-ie Director of Central Intelligence, who will then take appropriate action.
