The Executive Conanittee met on 22 and 23 June 1983 to review the Office of the Comptroller's proposed 1985 CIA Program. (ExDir) chaired the session; participants included Messrs. Fitzwater (DDA); Stein (DDO); Hineman (DDSE~I'); Gates (DDI); Taylor (IG); Glerum (D/OP), Childs (Comptroller);~~(Deputy Comptroller). 2. opened the meeting by stating that he wanted an open discussion of the proposed 1985 program to permit the Comptroller to incorporate Directorate suggestions into a program which would be reviewed at the next dav's executive session. The Comptroller summarized the ro r ' sues, noting that it called for at the-DCI Over- Guidance level, provided a strong, defendable program consistent with DCI instructions and the CIA strategic plan, and is generally responsive to the Deputy Directors' resource requirements. While the program first of all tops off initiatives which have been in effect for several years, it calls for a 12 percent growth at the DCI Guidance Level:. There are in new initiatives inside DCI Guidance,. among them some pressing support requirements and new sensitive technical? activities. The Comptroller noted that it may be necessary to take a close look at the program's effect on the out-years: OMB has indicated that there may be cuts in 1985 and beyond; some caution is in order when considering new initiatives in order to leave room for new requirements that may be overlooked. The Comptroller suggested that the EXCOM should be involved in more frequent reviews of high cost items and noted that if money is scarce it may be necessary to go hack and closely examine base programs. The NPIC upgrade, whether in the CIAP or not, is pushing and will have a substantial impact; ADP has grown to 11 percent of the budget; the Reserve is in a tenuous position in the ranking; DESIST, a new DDI requirement, and power plant improvements all require committee attention.

Mr. Hineman observed that the building, communications, and.NPIC upgrade were high cost items which could not be dropped. NPIC will be faced with processing ten times as much data he emphasized, represent an investment of each. A discussion followed on the relative merits of moving the NPIC upgrade to the NRP but it was agreed that all funding comes from the same pot and the result would be an equal reduction in the CIAP. 4. Mr. Gates noted that the Headquarters building, NPIC, communications--all buildings and technical things--were driving the budget. No matter how much is collected, the DDI needs to go through a recapitalization similar to that for the building and NPIC. It does not make sense to have a 50 percent growth in collection and not add to the program for analysis. The production theme includes people to process and plan collection but it falls at Mid-Guidance. We have been saying for years that we need to place analysis and collection in sync asked whether it is realistic to have other technical collection activities where they are or whether they should be dropped to move analysis higher. on time. Mr. Briggs concluded that everyone seemed to be saying that the new building is needed and that continuing the NPIC upgrade is a valid requirement. 6. Mr. Glerum noted that he would like more protection for the Career Trainee Task Force initiative as well as for the package which adds pay specialists to the Office of Personnel. He noted that CIA has to be more imaginative in its recruitment efforts and that market researchers are needed if we are to develop pay scales for high tech, clerical and other categories of personnel. At present, PMCD is working on pay scales with the result that certain position classification surveys have been delayed. Mr. Stein observed that there is progress in getting more CTs but he asked for assurances that there would be growth in the Office of Training to ensure it could prepare them for their work. 7. tasked whether there are any unique analysis or collection activities the Administration could be asked to assign to other agencies. He also asked whether there are sufficient resources for Agency narcotics, terrorism, and counterintelligence programs. Mr. Gates noted that Senators Benson and Wallop would like Commerce to do more in the economic Approved For Release 2008/06/27: CIA-RDP85B01152R001001300035-7 Approved For Release 2008/06/27: CIA-RDP85B01152R001001300035-7 area but that nobody would let Commerce do technical transfer analysis and Comneree has not asked for funding. Commerce has been told that the DDI will do no more foreign industrial analysis unless there is a national defense component involved. For CIA to do analysis it needs to have a technology transfer or national security aspect to it. Mr. Stein interjected that the PFIAB should get the Department of Defense to collect overt intelligence. Mr. Gates added that the Military Advisory Groups and Defense Attaches are in the best position, worldwide, to collect military related information. 8. Mr. Fitzwater said he believed it wauld be dreaming to expect funding beyond DCI Guidance. He has trouble with the NPIC upgrade; it is four times the size of the Head ~zarters building. He further noted that more than and about in his initiatives were not favorably ranker?. He wou ice o move people up out of the first support package-- the DA CI theme is ranked low, in 90th position. He advised the committee that new capabilities required electrical power and at some point the powerhouse needs to be upgraded. He suggested that the committee reach a consensus to permit him to shape the support packages. 9. Jim Taylor said he liked the ranking. It is balanced and gives the Deputy Directors flexibilit to carry out their programs; NPIC upgrade could take a cut and nat feel it. Ranking is strong on plumbing items and these is a need to keep pushing them while the climate is right and before we move into a cycle of.tighter budgets; for example, the Smithsonian would like to have our antiquated payroll system. Mr. Taylor presumed he was the only person resent who hopes personnel increases are coming to an end. shared this sentiment. The Executive Committee then adjourned until 23 June to permit the Comptroller to revise the program ranking. 10. When the Executive Committee reconvened on 23 June, the Comptroller presented a new ranking (attached) which took into consideration the previous day's comments. The committee agreed that for the present the Agency should strongly support an Over Guidance request for resources. It also decided that money ($1 million) for a LAN study for the old building ~rvoul.d be consolidated with the request for LAN funds for the new building. The personnel enhancement package was moved inside of DCI Guidance. Fitzwater noted that the power plant is a disaster waiting to happen. After further consideration, funding for powerhouse improvements were deferred to 1986 and it was agreed that a letter would be sent by the DCI to GSA proposing that CIA assume responsibility for owerhotise operations. It was also agreed that the new ~ initiative .for provides the potential to collect important intelligence and should move up from its Over Guidance position and be combined with the on-going initiative.
