The DDIS is responsible for military intelligence, which includes both specific intelligence for use at the operational level and broad assessments of the military capabilities and intentions of other countries. It is also responsible for administering security clearances within the military, and for supervising the security of sensitive military property.[2] It is one of four specialised intelligence agencies in New Zealand, alongside the Government Communications Security Bureau, the Security Intelligence Service, and the National Assessments Bureau.[3]


It was formed in 1967 as the "Directorate of Defence Intelligence". In 1998, it was renamed as the "Directorate of Defence Intelligence and Security". Currently, the DDIS has an annual budget of $1.8 million.[2]
