After the repeated urging of the Dept. of Energy (DOE), Congress in 2006 agreed to temporarily consolidate separate counterintelligence (CI) offices at DOE and the Nat. Nuclear Security Admin. (NNSA) into a single CI office under DOE control. The Senate version of the FY2010 Nat. Defense Authorization Bill contains language that would make the consolidation permanent. DOE had complained that the dual office structure was ineffective. In permitting DOE to consolidate the two offices, Congress reversed its 1999 authorization to establish a separate NNSA CI office a decision that at the time was prompted by congressional concerns over repeated departmental security and counterintelligence lapses. At the same time, in 2006, DOE combined its separate Offices of Intelligence, and Counterintelligence into a new DOE office called the Office of Intelligence and Counterintelligence. The Dept. reasoned that combining the disciplines of counterintelligence and foreign intelligence under one integrated office would foster synergistic cooperation that would lead to a more strategic and ultimately more effective counterintelligence program. This report analyzes both consolidations the first authorized by Congress at DOEs request; the second initiated by DOE and examines the impact of each on the effectiveness of the Dept.s CI program. A major oversight issue for Congress is whether either, or both, organizational changes will strengthen the Dept.s CI program as intended. Some observers are concerned that the two consolidations may have undercut CI capabilities.
