Chairman Hathaway asked where the additional posi- tions being added to the IC Staff were coming from and what activities were being reduced. The Director responded. by saying he was basically picking up a few positions from various locations in the CIA. Mr. Potts responded for the Department of Defense saying the precise areas from whence positions would be taken had not yet been identified but that this would be done as part of the 1978 budget exercise. The Chairman said don't we need to know that now, and again repeated his question. Mr. Potts responded that he could not give a precise answer but would supply something for the record. c. Chairman Hathaway asked how the Community perfor- mance would improve under this reorganization, and the Director responded by describing improvements in the coordination of collection tasking and in the carrying out of new budget 25x1 responsibilities. d. Chairman Hathaway asked the Director if he had considered other alternative reor aniz 'on 'rector responded saying that he and and had 25x1 looked at a number of ways o reorganizing an =a decided this was the most appropriate. e. Chairman Hathaway asked about the need for three evaluation units, and the Director explained what the different functions would be for each of the units in the National Foreign Assessment Center, the Collection Tasking Staff, and the Resource Management Staff. The Chairman asked if these units could not be merged, and the Director responded that they could be, but it would not result in a savings in personnel and might conceivably be less efficient in the long run. The Chairman asked if these units might be performing overlapping functions. The Director indicated that there would be some overlap, but it would be desirable. He also indicated that there would also be non- Government people invited into the process from time to time to help in the development of intelligence studies. f. Chairman Hathaway asked how the National Intelligence Tasking Center would interface with existing Community functions. The Director responded saying that the NITC would be colocated with the combined collection facility of'the Department of Defense, and that this would provide for an interface between tactical and national intelligence tasking.

Chairman Hathaway asked if there were any plans for further expansion of the IC Staff beyond what was being requested. The Director responded saying he did not plan any further expan- sion, but that at this point he could not be absolutely certain as to how many people would be needed and would have to wait and see whether the numbers currently being requested were right. h. Chairman Hathaway asked the Director to indicate what the Committee might look to in evaluating this new staff concept, and the Director responded saying that next year the Committee should look to the progress the Collection Tasking Staff had made in developing collection plans and the progress the Resource Management Staff would make in presenting better budget justifications. i.

The Director responded that he would, that he would cut overhead at CIA in order to increase operations, and that he had no desire to have any unnecessary management.

Senator Wallop and the Director then had a discussion on the manner in which intelligence analysts would relate to both the NITC and the collection tasking committees. The Director explained that while the NITC would grow in its role, he had no intention of prohibiting analysts from dealing directly with the functional tasking committees. Chairman Hathaway at one point asked if all analysts would be required to go to the NITC in the future and the Director responded that they would probably not have to do so. He indicated that he wished to maintain as much flexibility as possible in these matters. 'Senator Wallop then asked if this plan was the result of a study the Director had made and the Director responded that it was based on his experience over the past year and a half. 25x1 1. Chairman Hathaway asked what the reorganization would be doing to improve counterintelligence.

Chairman Hathaway asked'wnat r. rzezinskifs role would be in counterintelligence and the Director replied that he would be responsible for managing the overall Government effort and would not get down into daily operating details. At one point in the conversation the Director indicated that the placement of managed ment responsibility for counterintelligence was a problem because of the close affinity of counterintelligence to law enforcement and that the decision to give this role to the NSC was, in effect, a compromise. 25x1 M.
