Strategy

Overall DIA Strategic Plan

The DIA 2012-2017 Strategy is to strengthen and unite the Agency's core defense intelligence capabilities to best support warfighters and policymakers in an era of persistent international conflict and enduring U.S. fiscal challenges. The strategy's theme is One Mission - One Team - One Agency. One Mission, cleanly nested in all-source defense intelligence, is accomplished by One Team, operating as an integrated, agile, and results-oriented force within One Agency, performing as a critical member of the Defense Intelligence Enterprise and committed to excellence in defense of our Nation.

As the Nation's premier combat support agency within the Defense Intelligence Enterprise, DIA is committed to the vital role it plays in winning today's wars, preventing strategic surprise, deterring conflict, and preparing to defeat future adversaries. DIA's critical and unique role in the Enterprise and Intelligence Community (IC) is grounded in its core mission capabilities that collect, process, exploit, and analyze foreign military and defense-related information, and then produce and disseminate timely and relevant all-source analysis. Equally distinctive is DIA's proven expeditionary competency in confidently providing surge intelligence support to combatant commands and warfighters to meet operational and tactical priority intelligence requirements.
