CONNECT WITH DIA
Washington D.C. - May 13, 2005
The Secretary of Defense announced today his recommendations for Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) 2005, three of which affect the Defense Intelligence Agency. These recommendations were the result of a long, deliberative process and represent the best collective judgment of the Department of Defense, the individual services, and the BRAC Joint Cross-Service Groups that formed the recommendations.
The Defense Intelligence Agency will relocate some analytical functions from Bolling AFB, Washington, D.C, to Charlottesville, Va. Other DIA activities will be consolidated within the National Capital Region.
DIA has participated fully in the BRAC 2005 process, both through voting representation on the Intelligence Joint Cross-Service Group, and through the provision of certified data during multiple calls. These certified data were part of the information that ultimately formed the basis for the Secretary’s set of recommendations, consistent with the laws that govern BRAC.
DIA, as necessary, will continue to support the process with certified data and testimony, while the Comptroller General of the United States, the BRAC Commission, the president, and the United States Congress perform their respective roles and duties under the law.

DIA is the nation’s premier all-source military intelligence organization.
It provides the nation’s most authoritative assessments of foreign military intentions and capabilities. The agency’s four core competencies -- human intelligence, all-source analysis, counterintelligence and technical intelligence -- enable military operations while also informing policy-makers at the defense and national levels.
DIA’s mission is unique and no other agency matches its military expertise across such a broad range of intelligence disciplines.
