Approved For Release 2007/02/28: ClSRE0"[01731 R001700090002-7 ?w 25 April 1951 MEMORANDUM FOR THE FILE SUBJECT: IAC Discussion on Collaboration of Intelligence {ti and U. S. Operators and Planners in the Preparatia o!' Certain Studies (23 April 1951) 1. On the question of the disposition of scheduled NIEs (*) requiring inclusion of information on U. S. military plans and. str( _t;[ i. s in order to make them useful estimates, there was considerable list'_-=oE of the jurisdiction of the IAC and of Intelligence in this fiel:l. 2. Reference was made to the view of the JCS regarding N l'-3C,, namely, that the McMahon request was not made on proper author.=,y sore was it made to the proper agency and that nothing further could be with the IA.C draft estimate in view of General Marshall's letter. 3. With respect to NIE-13 it was indicated that the asset of opposing friendly forces (including U.S.) would be vacuous b. that for the IAC to get into the business of "war-s:amir would be opposed by the JCS and would in fact not be -prop - or useful. 5. It was recognized that the problem lay in finding some ;nid- point between these two extremes. There was considerable hope )'.presee d in the arrangements reported by General Huebner and confirmed b", Gerc.t" Megee which have been established with the Joint Staff. These a'raLf,.e ments provide that the members of the JIG, who have complete acc-s the operations or planning information essential to make their a-,ti + useful. ?y1O . /CDF Pages NIE-13: Prospects for the Creation of an Adequate Western uate Western E:;rop.- ts Defense NIE-30: Soviet Capabilities to Interfere with US Delivery ors' At43'? : Weapons to Targets in the USSR Approved For Release 2007/02/28: AUUM-L01731 R001700090002-7 Approved For Release 2007/02/28 :.

Mr. str~_- agreed and indicated that his people are in close contact witl police officers in the Department and as far as he knew were providin; adeu-v and proper guidance for the intelligence estimators. 7. In the case of an estimate on a primarily military su.)jeet ";he view was expressed that this was properly a job for the JIC or JCS rat::r than the IAC. Mr. Jackson pointed out that the DCI's responsi:)ilitN (in. his capacity as Director of Central Intelligence as opposed to his position as Agency head) might require him to endorse or coiwneat or such a paper even though produced by JIC. 8. The possibility was also raised that the jurisdiction_z1 ar?a of Intelligence within which the DCI is responsible may extent furti_(:r into the operations and planning sphere than the Service inte.lligenc4 chiefs would be allowed to go.

Psychological Intelligence Support (O/RR, 0/0, 0/PC) Problem: To recommend the necessary arrangements for iiter_ agency support of psychological warfare. Status: The problem has been discussed with all agencies concerned both from the planning or operatin. viewpoint and from the intelligence side. As a result of these conversations a tentative break- down has been made of the kinds of intelligerce support that are required. The immediate need is: (a) to find out if this is an accurate, complete, and meaningful breskdovcu (b) to determine who will provide each type of intelligence, or what portion of each type, :ad the extent to which each requires interagency coordination; (c) to clarify agency responsi hiliid and to recommend appropriate ways of achieving necessary coordination. CIA has the responsi bill..,.;' and initiative to see that appropriate intel.igezr:,; support is provided for psychological warfare ant! that the intelligence activities of government departments and agencies in this field are properi; coordinated. Intelligence Support for Civil Defense TO /NE, 0 SI, O C I, O /SO, 0/CD) Problem: To effect necessary arrangements for intellivenc= support for the Federal Civil Defense Admini. tra- _ ;n. Status: The problem has been discussed with Mr. . Babb`tt of FCDA and with the other agencies concerned. A recommendation is being prepared for the DCI for possible consideration by the IAC. 3. External Research (0/0, O/RR, O/SI, 0/CD) Problem: To determine the optimum degree of coordination e all CIA and IAC Agency requirements for external research; and to see that necessary nodifica>ioni are made in existing arrangements. Status: 0/0 proposals and the comments of other offioes have been received. O/IC is discussing the nro- blem with interested people in the agencies concerned. In the Social Science field, ERS is compiling a list of research projects not contract_d for by the Government. Government sponsored proje_ are coordinated through the Research and Devolopmen; Board.

Evaluation (0/0, 0/SO) Problem: To arrive at intra- and interagency underst:ndizgs and agreements to provide evaluation of 0/0 and 0/SO reports, Status: Agreements have been reached on a bilateral bas: between CIA and G-2, ONI, and A-2. Unders t& ndin already exist for evaluations by 0/SI and Q/RR. Further discussion is necessary before agreements' can be reached with the State Department. The r o''- of 0/CI in evaluation has not been determined, 1 5. Requirements (All offices) Problem: To develop adequate arrangements for providi'ig coordinated requirements by priority for the various collection units, particularly with -esp3ct, to 0/S0. Status: (a) 0/NE is preparing a general guidance for collectors from the point of view of est:~matos, This general guide if deemed useful will be coor- dinated with the other agencies. (c) 0/0/C has initiated desk to desk contact with OIR, State, as a means of improving both State requests and State evaluation, (d) JCS paper No. SM-626-51, containing G-2, ONI, and A--2 requirements (mainly for covert col- lection) is being matched by other requesting agencies. These will be screened for possible non- covert collection and the balance segregated accor- ding to: (1) 0/30 current collection capabil .ty; (2) 0/SO capability under present planning; aid (3) those items for which no current plans exist. (e) Current probems concerning daily requests for information, if not resolvable by 0/SO directly with the requesters, will be referred to 0/IC to :i-E-C- E-T Approved For Release 2007/02/28: IA- DMOR01731 8001700090002-7 Approved For Release 2007/02/28: CIA-RDP80RO1731 R001700090002-7 achieve a solution, by reference to the Dir, ,cto' necessary. 6. Interdepartmental Committees (All offices) Problem: To review the existing interdepartmental co1mit!"011? for which this Agency provides chairmanship and ..3 review the interest of the Agency in those ,..-_ier~? has only membership. Status: Offices of CIA have supplied committee data to Cy"-, This office is now filling gaps in the data Vherc incomplete, A preliminary survey has been submits,;z to the Director.

S-E-C R-E-T `"r Biographic Intelligence (C/CD) Problem: To suggest the most effective biographic fa(..;.lit for the Federal Intelligence System. Status: A report, setting forth possible ways of mee Ling this problem, has been prepared by Biographic: Register of O/CD on the basis of IAC Agency ?epl . s to a survey questionnaire. Tentative views )f o/1: are: (a) complete centralization of bio-ap;fic records in CIA would not meet the requiremen s o' all agencies; (b) specialization and partial cent.; ization is possible; (c) greater coordination anion existing biographic facilities is essential. Pertinent directives have been approved by the Secretary of Defense after IAC concurrence; imple- menting manuals are being coordinated among the non-military agencies after JIC approval, The agr.ement by which CIA will represent the oth-r non-military agencies in these matters can be con- cluded as soon as the manuals have been formally Approved For Release 2007/02/28 : tA"R 01731 ROO1700090002-7 Approved For Release 2007/02/28: CIA-RDP80RO1731 R001700090002-7 S fl-C R-E-T Scientific Intelligence Committee (0/SI) Problem: To examine the problems of 0/SI in the fief: of interagency coordination in the planning and pr= duction of scientific reports and estimates and to make appropriate recommendations. Status: Proposal`: of the representatives of the Deftanse intelligence agencies on the SIC have quest:oneci the responsibility of CIA to coordinate scientij' . , and technical intelligence in the federal irEtel:.- -- gence system? This issue is currently under thorough study in 0/SI and will be di,cusssc'. further informally with the Defense agencies. ll.
