Most of the agencies represented were strongly in favor of: a central repository for all Nondisclosure Agreements. opposed. to burdesiing the individual SIO's with this respansi- bility for which they have no resotarces. 25X1A ~? polled the attendees and f"ound that all favored a central repository except NSA (which preferred to a~rai7atain its own Nondisclosure Agreements) and CIA, which 25X1A abstaii~~ed, would ap}7reciate a CIA position an a central repository or ondisclosure Agreements--the point }?eing that all other agencies (except NSA) would like to see CIA accept this responsibility to which I could. not commit. - either OS or CIA. 3. I wo,.zld appreciate gr?~idance on t}ris matter- -even in 25X1A th.e form of a memo fa-om -putting the Office on record as either accepting or declining to assume the role of Nondisclosure Agreement keeper for the community, and the: concomitant resource impact. such an acceptance would entail.
