HPSCI filed its Fiscal Year 1998 Intelligence Authorization Act with the House on 18 June 1997. The five major themes addressed are: (1) Focus on shortfalls in intelligence; (2) heightened emphasis on "downstream" activities; (3) ensure clandestine HUMINT programs are equipped to fill intelligence gaps; (4) promote flexibility in the use of technology to meet intelligence needs; and (5) develop a more corporate and flexible community.
Other provisions include "a request for a report from the DCI to ensure that important resource allocation decisions within the Foreign Broadcast Information Service (FBIS) re-engineering plan are not being made without fully taking into account 'customer' requirements."

Excerpts from the Executive Summary of Report of Joint Security Commission, submitted 28 February 1994 to Defense Secretary Perry and DCI Woolsey. The report identifies a need to "balance the risk of loss or damage against the costs of countermeasures...," that is, to use a risk management approach. It recommends the "creation of a uniform cost-accounting methodology and tracking system for security resources expended..., common standards for adjudications [in personnel security] and a joint investigative service to standardize background investigations..., [and] formation of a single organization ... responsible for the creation of security policies and overseeing the coherent implementation of those policies across the Defense and Intelligence Communities."
