(0) Utilizing the DCS as a single inventory source, allocating, reallocating, restoring circuits and channels, and rerouting of traffic. As a direct consequence of the conversion of military departmental networks into the single system, costs in manpower and money should be reduced in future years, the quality of service provided through the DCS should be increased, and the factors of reliability and survivability considerably enhanced.


When it becomes fully operational, DIA will be responsible for the following, excluding activities specifically assigned to NSA:

(a) Assembling, integrating, validating, and priority ranking DOD intelligence requirements; assigning specific requirements to DOD collection agencies and resources and tasking non-DOD collection resources, when necessary, to fulfill DOD intelligence requirements.

(0) Developing and producing all DOD intelligence estimates and DOD information and contributions to national estimates for the U.S. Intelligence Board.

(c) Providing plans, programs, policies, and procedures for the conduct of DOD intelligence collection activities and reviewing and coordinating intelligence functions of the military departments.

(d) Supervising the execution of all approved intelligence plans, programs, policies, and procedures for intelligence functions not assigned to DIA.

(e) Insuring that all DOD intelligence activities are conducted in accordance with the priorities and procedures of the Director of Central Intelligence and the U.S. Intelligence Board.

(1) Furnishing DOD intelligence support to major components, including Washington-level DOD current intelligence and indications support and DOD representation on intergovernmental intelligence committees and other intergovernmental intelligence activities.

(0) Obtaining the maximum economy and efficiency in the allocation and management of DOD intelligence activities. Apart from well-recognized intelligence functions which have been performed traditionally by the three military departments and by the Joint Staff of the JCS, the DIA has been charged with performing functions new to military intelligence. They include

(a) The preparation annually of a consolidated intelligence budget.

(0) The establishment and operation of a central Department of Defense intelligence requirements registry for the purpose of eliminating duplicative servicing of requirements and for the purpose of assigning priorities to the fulfillment of military intelligence requirements by a single authority.

(c) The continuing evaluation at the Defense Department level of the utilization of military intelligence collection resources and systems for the purposes of eliminating duplication in the collection effort and improving the effectiveness of collection operations.

(d) The provision of around-the-clock teams of analysts for the production and dissemination of current intelligence and warning information at the Defense Department level.

(e) The provision of centralized management at the Defense Department level of mapping, charting, and geodesy programs, to include the fixing of

priorities. To fulfill the responsibilities and functions of DIA, a substantial portion of the headquarters strength of the military departmental intelligence organizations is in the process of being transferred to the direction, management, and control of DIA.

DEFENSE SUPPLY AGENCY (psa) DSA is responsible for the organization, direction, management, administration, and control of the supply and service functions previously assigned to

(a) The Armed Forces Supply Support Center. The AFSS Center operated under the general direction of the Armed Forces Supply Support Council, which consisted of a Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense (I. & L.) as Chairman, general and flag rank officers from each of the military services, and the Director of the Center. The AFSS Council operated under the direction of the Secretary of Defense. The Director and the Deputy Director of the Center were appointed by the Secretary of Defense. The AFSS Center administered the Federal catalog program, the defense standardization program, and the defense materiel utilization program. In addition, the Center conducted analyses of the operations of the supply systems of the military services with the objective of obtaining optimum integration in the interest of increased military effectiveness and economy.

(b) The Military Subsistence, Clothing and Textile, Medical, Petroleum, General, Industrial, Automotive, and Construction Supply Agencies. Formerly, each of these was a single manager operating agency headed by an executive director. Each operated under the Secretary of the Army or the Secretary of the Navy who had been designated by the Secretary of De fense as the “single manager” responsible on the wholesale level for the pro curement, inventory control, and distribution of a category of supplies for all the military departments. The executive directors reported to the single managers through channels prescribed by the single managers. In turn, the single managers reported to the Secretary of Defense.

(c) The Military Traffic Management Agency. Forinerly, this also was a single manager operating agency. The single manager was the Secretary of the Army.

(d) The Armed Forces Surplus Property Bidders Registration and Sales Information Office. This office was formerly operated by the Department of the Air Force. It served all the military services by maintaining a central bidders' list of surplus buyers and by serving as the focal point for all inquiries pertaining to the sale of surplus personal property.

(e) The consolidated surplus sales offices. These offices were formerly operated by the military departments. In the geographical area assigned to it, each of these offices was responsible for the supervision of the sale of surplus personal property of all the military services within that geographical


The organization, direction, management, adminstration, and control of electrical and electronics materiel assigned to DSA by the Secretary of Defense. With respect to this responsibility, the Defense Electronics Supply Center was established at Gentile Air Force Station, Dayton, Ohio, as a major field activity of DSA on January 1, 1962. A joint planning staff under Brig. Gen. William W. Veal, USAF, is developing detailed plans to bring DESC to operational status by July 1, 1962.

The organization, direction, management, administration and control of such other commodities and services as may be directed by the Secretary of Defense.

A wholesale distribution system for assigned supplies.
Performing or arranging for materiel inspection of all assigned supplies.

Administration and supervision of the DOD coordinated procurement program. Formerly performed in the Office of the Secretary of Defense.

The administration and supervision of the defense surplus personal property disposal program. Formerly performed in the Office of the Secretary of Defense

The administration and supervision of such other programs as may be directed by the Secretary of Defense.

Systems analysis and design, procedural development, and maintenance for assigned supply and service systems and as authorized by the Secretary of Defense

DSA is still in the process of progressively assuming its assigned responsibilities. Generally, for the items it manages, the DSA is responsible for the "wholesale" part of supply operations and the military services will be responsible for the “retail" part. It might be said that DSA is the “wholesaler" for the items it manages and the military services the “retailers" as well as the "consumers.” The military departments will determine their military requirements; DSA will purchase stock and distribute to the military departmental “re tail" logistic organizations to meet these requirements. Please identify what agencies, divisions, or functions have been eliminated in

the three military departments following the establishment of each separate Agency.


None of the functions of DASA were performed in the military departments. Consequently no agencies, division, or functions were eliminated following the establishment of PASA or its predecessor AFSWP. Rather, the services provided by DASA obviate the establishment of special organizations in the military services to carry out responsibilities in the field of atomic weapons.

The establishment of NSA did not result in the elimination of any agencies or divisions in the military departments, except the Armed Forces Security Agency which it superseded. When the latter Agency was created in 1949, it consolidated some military department research and development functions, the production of some equipment, and certain Army and Navy headquarters specialized intelligence facilities.

With the creation of the NSA, the military departments retained under their administrative control the Army Security Agency, the Naval Security Group, and the Air Force Security Service. Certain activities of those agencies were placed under the operational control of the Director, NSA.


Prior to the establishment of the DCA, the military departments, to a degree which varied by department, exercised the type of control over their communications circuits which is now being performed by the DCA communications control complea. The departmental communications agencies previously engaged in these control functions have not been completely disestablished for the reason that the departments must continue to exercise some control over those communications facilities and circuits which are not considered part of the DCA. In the Air Force, for example, their control units among other functions are still responsible for air navigational aids—these are not facilities of the Defense Communications System. With the exception of the control function as it related to circuits of the DCS, no other functions, agencies, or divisions have been eliminated by the three military departments following the establishment of the Defense Communications Agency.


The Warning Division of Air Force Assistant Chief of Staff, Intelligence, has been transferred to DIA, and the following functions, formerly performed by the military departmental organizations, have been assumed by DIA:

6. The function of producing and disseminating current intelligence and warning information at the departmental level.

b. The functions of coordinating and establishing the validity of military intelligence collection requirements, assigning priorities to them, and originating specific collection requests to non-Defense collection resources.

Department of the Air Force Headquarters. The above information reflects only the agencies, divisions, or functions elimi. nated in the three military departments or OSD and transferred to DSA resulting from those responsibilities assigned to DSA which have been assumed by DSA to date. As additional currently assigned responsibilities are assumed by DSA, additional eliminations in the military departments, and transfers to DSA commensurate with responsibilities assigned but not yet assumed will be effected. Responsibilities currently assigned to DSA but not yet assumed by the agency include the petroleum, general, industrial, construction, atomotive and elec trical electronic supplies areas and the consolidation of the Army and Marine Corps clothing factories. Please identify the areas in which each Department of Defense agency operates

that has a counterpart still in peration within a military department.


There are no counterparts to DASA in operation within the military depart



NSA has no true counterpart in the military departments. The exact mis sion and functions prescribed for NSA are unique to NSA. Within the military

departments there are the Army Security Agency, the Naval Security Group, and the Air Force Security Service. Although the Director, NSA, exercises operational control over these agencies, he does not actually command all of the resources which contribute to fulfillment of his responsibilities.


Each military department is charged with operating their respective components of the DCS and therefore maintains an organizational entity which functions in coordination with the DCA in its role as operation and management director of the DCS. Again it is important to emphasize that DCA does not operate the communications circuitry of the DCS but functions as the single manager for the system.


For those areas in which DIA has been assigned responsibility and is operational, there are no counterparts still in operation within the military departments. DIA, however, will not entirely replace the military departmental intelligence organizations--ACSI, ONI, and AFCIN-even when it is fully operational. These organizations will continue to have responsibilities in such areas as counterintelligence, intelligence training, and technical intelligence under the coordination of DIA. As DIA progressively assumes its assigned responsibilities, there will be corresponding reductions in the intelligence functions now being performed by ACSI, ONI, and AFCIN,

In the field, DIA will not assume command over intelligence collection activities which will remain in the components of unified commands, in specified commands, or in departmental forces in the United States. Concurrently with the establishment of DIA, the control of the unified commanders over intelligence activities of their component commands is being strengthened by direction of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. DIA has been designated the principal agent of the Joint Chiefs of Staff to provide intelligence and counterintelligence support to unified and specified commands. In this role, DIA will furnish guidance to intelligence collection resources in the field through the unified and specified commanders.


For those areas in which DSA has been assigned responsibility and is operational, there are no counterparts still in operation within the military depart.


Please identify any new areas that are being considered for consolidation in

a new defense agency. No new areas are presently being considered for consolidation in a new defense agency. Please identify functions now performed by military departments that will be

absorbed by existing defense agencies.

DCA is completing necessary preparations to assume certain national level communications formerly the responsibility of the Department of the Army. In addition, the Agency will assume operational direction of civil defense communications, formerly the responsibility of OCDM. These two systems will become components of the DCS.


DIA is progressively assuming its assigned responsibilities. Meanwhile, some functions ultimately to be completely assumed by DIA are still being performed in the military departmental intelligence organizations.

The military departments are continuing to produce military intelligence including estimates. These activities will continue until DIA activates its
