Mr. Colby is meeting with press representatives today to provide them with an "off the record" background briefing concerning the reorganization of the Office of National Estimates (ONE).

I envision the MAG acting not only as a sounding board for new management concepts, but hope that each member will exercise initiative and enthusiasm in prompting studies which may benefit our Office and members of our Career Service. I will begin by asking you to evaluate and submit. recommendations concerning a number of specific proposals, issues and problems now facing Security management. As you proceed, your continuing dialogue with personnel at all levels within the Office will suggest to you other topics which also warrant management consideration. I urge you to be alert to such matters and to undertake relevant studies on your own initiative. I do ask that before beginning work on any new undertaking or expanding the scope-of any ongoing project, you discuss the subject matter with me to insure that we are remaining within our general area of responsibility and are not likely to be in conflict with any Agency policies of which you may be un- aware. -I welcome each of you to membership in the Security MAG and look forward to a series of interesting and pro- ductive sessions.
