Office of Intelligence and Counterintelligence

The Office of Intelligence and Counterintelligence (OICI) is an office of the United States Department of Energy that focuses on gathering intelligence for the department. It provides information to the Secretary of Energy and senior federal policy makers. As a member of the Intelligence Community, it also provides the other intelligence agencies with technical analysis of foreign intelligence. The Office of Intelligence utilizes all of the Department of Energy's resources to gather and analyze intelligence, including the national laboratories. Its expertise is in nuclear weapons, nuclear proliferation, nuclear energy, radioactive waste and energy security. Its most important function to the Intelligence Community is its assessments of foreign nuclear weapons programs. However, it also provides scientific expertise, analysis and technology. Currently, the office does not perform counterintelligence activities. These are handled by the National Nuclear Security Administration and the Office of the National Counterintelligence Executive.
