DNI John D. Negroponte will move his headquarters to Bolling Air Force Base "once the two top floors in the Defense Intelligence Analysis Center are readied.

According to a report to Congress by DCI George Tenet, the Department of Energy (DOE) has "developed a new system used by American spies around the world to communicate back to headquarters. The prototype system is a mobile, wireless, Intranet protocol-based computer communications network 'that incorporates low probability of detection/low probability of intercept characteristics.'" DOE also helped the U.S. Secret Service by "developing a prototype system used to tag and track vehicles. The chemical tag is sprayed onto target cars or trucks and can be tracked with special lights."


According to a report to Congress by DCI George Tenet, "[t]he Pentagon has upgraded its Joint Worldwide Intelligence Communications System hardware and video teleconferencing capabilities." The DIA "also upgraded its HUMINT Operational Control Network that is part of [its] Defense Attache Worldwide Network, or DAWN, used to help military spies share information."


According to a report to Congress by DCI George Tenet, "the CIA has ended publication of its premier top-secret report, the National Intelligence Daily. The NID has been replaced by the Senior Executives Intelligence Brief 'as the daily vehicle to inform policy-makers.' The move was part of 'procedures to more carefully control copies of the SEIB and protect it from accidental or intentional disclosure.'"
