(S/CL-3/NOFORN) Continual discussions with DIA management now indicate that the transfer of ICLP activities to DIA is not likely to take place by 31 December 1984. DIA has agreed to accept total responsibility for the nsychoenergetic applications and research program. However, current Congressional prohibitions against the use of NFIP resources in such a program and the critical absence of non-NFIP resources at DIA have not allowed DIA resource managers to identify personnel spaces in which to transfer the nine personnel currently assigned to ICLP. These managers, therefore, have taken the position that a detailing action is necessary if the transfer of ICLP functions is to take place. A detailing action would permit DIA to manage and operate the program without using NFIP resources since ICLP personnel are in non-NFIP spaces. Use of non-NFIP resources is an interim measure that will be resolved when Congress approves the DIA FY 86-90 GRIP initiative for a CENTER LANE follow-on. DIA has already submitted the initiative, but Congress will not review and rule on it until at least summer 1985. When Congress approves the initiative, the GDIP supported psychoenergetic program can be implemented during the first quarter FY 86. 2. (S/CL-3/NOFORN) For the above reasons on 3 December 1984, Dr. Jack Vorona, Assistant Deputy Director for Scientific and Technical Intelligence, DIA, directed the preparation of a decision paper for the Director, DIA that would support a DIA position to recommend detailing of ICLP personnel rather than a BSI I I\ I\ [ I,LT~~i,' )iJ1 C \\ 1L.l j ?

The paper would also suggest that LTG Williams contact MG Soyster to discuss the issue. The decision paper is scheduled to be submitted to LTG Williams on 7 December 1984. 3. (S/CL-3/NOFORN) My assessment of the situation concludes that a detailing action is in the best interests of the program, INSCOM, and personnel currently assigned to ICLP. Detailing wou1.d permit an early resumption of collection activities, the continuation of training, and the assumption of responsibility by D IA for manaemen.t of the PoD psychoenergetic program. Should Congress react negatively to the GDIP initiative, the personnel involved in the detailing process, together with their varied skills and considerable experience, would not be lost to 1"SC101 and could be reassigned to contribute positively in other areas of the command. 4. (S/CL-3/NOFOR N) The one drawback for INSCOM is the problem of "tying up" spaces occupied by the nine personnel currently assigned to ICLP. Recent actions, however, may ameliorate this situation. First of these is the scheduled 1 January 1985 ant;lorization of three personnel on the Security Systems Planning Division (SSPD), MI Battalion (Security), 902d MI Group (the CENTER LANE cover organization) nine person TDA organization. This will allow three of the current "out-of-hide" personnel to be slotted against valid positions. Second, one of the individuals involved is scheduled to PCS in July 1985, after completion of a four year tour with CENTER LANE. The personnel management system allows requisitioning and manning against the position he now occupies as much as six months in advance, that is in January 1985. Third, one of the enlisted personnel currently assigned is due to, and probably will, ETS in July 1985. While these personnel will eventually be replaced, once the activity is transferred to DIA, no replacements for these two individuals have been identified and there are no plans to fill these projected vacancies with INSCOM assets. Fourth, one individual assigned to SSPD falls under the atisoices of the GREAT SKILLS program. He will be maintained on ASD's roster, and therefore always be an INSCOM asset.
