Normally limited to 40 students generally in grades GS-05 to GS-13. Intelligence Process Course (4) No Designed to give new professionals a basic knowledge of the intelligence process and the interaction between requirements, collection, analysis and presentation. Special emphasis on research and presentation methods that make finished intelligence meaningful to policy makers. Limited to 20 students, usually in grades GS-08 to GS-12. II. External Programs Brookings Conference for Business Executives *No on Federal Government Operations (10) A one-week series of sessions for high-level executives from all parts of the U.S. The last event of each Conference is a visit to the Agency for a luncheon and a briefing. The briefing has been handled in the past by one of the Deputy Directors, assisted by a panel of one senior representative from each Directorate. The Director might wish to appear occasionally at the luncheon, given the relatively high level of the guests. The group usually consists of 31-32 conferees. Foreign Service Institute course: "Intelligence No an Foreign Policy" (1) Members come from State, AID, USIA, and occasionally such departments of government as Library of Congress and General Accounting Office. We give them a 2-day briefing, the second day on operations. Mr. Colby has not met with this group in the recent past but Mr. Bush may wish to do so. The group usually consists of about 30 officers. *Proctor or Duckett handle very well.

Blake Deputy Director for Administration 1. As a matter of practice I have been meeting with DDA attendees of the Midcareer Course subsequent to their return to duty for the purposes of both getting feedback on how DDA presentations are received and, additionally, to elicit any comments made by non-DDA attendees concerning their perceptions of this Directorate. 2. In general all presentations by DDA officers appear to be well received. In meeting with the -group that attended the last Midcareer Course the following points were made: a. The class was not particularly looking forward to the presentations of Messrs. Yale and Malanick, thinking the subjects were rather dry and, therefore, they anticipated a mundane presentation. The class was proved wrong and both men were very well received. I have had similar comments from other groups. b. The group felt that did a good job on a very complex subject, APP and PDP, but admitted to a rather col- lective lack of interest by the class in the subject matter. They also felt some additional time should be given to the other responsibilities of the Office of Personnel as opposed to so much time to APP and PDP. STATINTL c. M:r. I represented the Office of Security and the class particularly commented on the uniqueness of the "show and tell" aspects, i.e., showing the various devices. Approved For Release Z002105/01,: bIA.

Several in the group felt the words on multiphasic examinations could be somewhat expanded and, additionally, felt a bit more on the physical aspects as opposed to the psychological aspects of the Office of Medical Services could be developed. The absence of comments here on other Offices is not to be mis- interpreted. The group had no specific comments to make. 3. For the benefit of the Office of Training, I record the following. The group felt consideration might be given to sending to nominated class members, prior to the course starting, selected reading material that is now given out and read during the course. I pointed out that much of this material is classified and would have to be read on duty time which might present a problem. I have no particular feelings one way or the other. I did ask if included in the reading material was the DDA monograph on history and functions. It was not made available. I would suggest that maybe it should be and prior to the DDA presentations. I should think the presentations would be more meaningful if the booklet had been read and, perhaps, would allow for the development of more and better questions by the students.
