        year to fiscal year to address funding shortfalls caused by 
        significant increases in the costs of acquisition of major 
        systems by the intelligence community.
            (2) While some increases in the costs of acquisition of 
        major systems by the intelligence community are unavoidable, the 
        magnitude of growth in the costs of acquisition of many major 
        systems indicates a systemic bias within the intelligence 
        community to underestimate the costs of such acquisition, 
        particularly in the preliminary stages of development and 
        production.
            (3) Decisions by Congress to fund the acquisition of major 
        systems by the intelligence community rely significantly upon 
        initial estimates of the affordability of acquiring such major 
        systems and occur within a context in which funds can be 
        allocated for a variety of alternative programs. Thus, 
        substantial increases in costs of acquisition of major systems 
        place significant burdens on the availability of funds for other 
        programs and new proposals within the National Foreign 
        Intelligence Program.

[[Page 117 STAT. 2607]]

            (4) Independent cost estimates, prepared by independent 
        offices, have historically represented a more accurate 
        projection of the costs of acquisition of major systems.
            (5) Recognizing the benefits associated with independent 
        cost estimates for the acquisition of major systems, the 
        Secretary of Defense has built upon the statutory requirement in 
        section 2434 of title 10, United States Code, to develop and 
        consider independent cost estimates for the acquisition of such 
        systems by mandating the use of such estimates in budget 
        requests of the Department of Defense.
            (6) The mandatory use throughout the intelligence community 
        of independent cost estimates for the acquisition of major 
        systems will assist the President and Congress in the 
        development and funding of budgets which more accurately reflect 
        the requirements and priorities of the United States Government 
        for intelligence and intelligence-related activities.

    (b) Budget Treatment of Costs of Acquisition of Major Systems.--(1) 
Title V of the National Security Act of 1947 (50 U.S.C. 413 et seq.) is 
    amended by inserting after section 506 the following new section:

    ``Sec. 506A. <<NOTE: 50 USC 415a-1.>> (a) Independent Cost 
Estimates.--(1) The Director of Central Intelligence shall, in 
consultation with the head of each element of the intelligence community 
concerned, prepare an independent cost estimate of the full life-cycle 
cost of development, procurement, and operation of each major system to 
be acquired by the intelligence community.

    ``(2) Each independent cost estimate for a major system shall, to 
the maximum extent practicable, specify the amount required to be 
appropriated and obligated to develop, procure, and operate the major 
system in each fiscal year of the proposed period of development, 
procurement, and operation of the major system.
    ``(3)(A) In the case of a program of the intelligence community that 
qualifies as a major system, an independent cost estimate shall be 
prepared before the submission to Congress of the budget of the 
President for the first fiscal year in which appropriated funds are 
anticipated to be obligated for the development or procurement of such 
major system.
    ``(B) In the case of a program of the intelligence community for 
which an independent cost estimate was not previously required to be 
prepared under this section, including a program for which development 
or procurement commenced before the date of the enactment of the 
Intelligence Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2004, if the aggregate 
future costs of development or procurement (or any combination of such 
activities) of the program will exceed $500,000,000 (in current fiscal 
year dollars), the program shall qualify as a major system for purposes 
of this section, and an independent cost estimate for such major system 
shall be prepared before the submission to Congress of the budget of the 
President for the first fiscal year thereafter in which appropriated 
funds are anticipated to be obligated for such major system.
    ``(4) The independent cost estimate for a major system shall be 
updated upon--
            ``(A) the completion of any preliminary design review 
        associated with the major system;

[[Page 117 STAT. 2608]]

            ``(B) any significant modification to the anticipated design 
        of the major system; or
            ``(C) any change in circumstances that renders the current 
        independent cost estimate for the major system inaccurate.

    ``(5) Any update of an independent cost estimate for a major system 
under paragraph (4) shall meet all requirements for independent cost 
estimates under this section, and shall be treated as the most current 
independent cost estimate for the major system until further updated 
under that paragraph.
    ``(b) <<NOTE: Establishment.>> Preparation of Independent Cost 
Estimates.--(1) The Director shall establish within the Office of the 
Deputy Director of Central Intelligence for Community Management an 
office which shall be responsible for preparing independent cost 
estimates, and any updates thereof, under subsection (a), unless a 
designation is made under paragraph (2).

    ``(2) In the case of the acquisition of a major system for an 
element of the intelligence community within the Department of Defense, 
the Director and the Secretary of Defense shall provide that the 
independent cost estimate, and any updates thereof, under subsection (a) 
be prepared by an entity jointly designated by the Director and the 
Secretary in accordance with section 2434(b)(1)(A) of title 10, United 
States Code.
    ``(c) Utilization in Budgets of President.--(1) If the budget of the 
President requests appropriations for any fiscal year for the 
development or procurement of a major system by the intelligence 
community, the President shall, subject to paragraph (2), request in 
such budget an amount of appropriations for the development or 
procurement, as the case may be, of the major system that is equivalent 
to the amount of appropriations identified in the most current 
independent cost estimate for the major system for obligation for each 
fiscal year for which appropriations are requested for the major system 
in such budget.
    ``(2) If the amount of appropriations requested in the budget of the 
President for the development or procurement of a major system is less 
than the amount of appropriations identified in the most current 
independent cost estimate for the major system for obligation for each 
fiscal year for which appropriations are requested for the major system 
in such budget, the President shall include in the budget justification 
materials submitted to Congress in support of such budget--
            ``(A) an explanation for the difference between the amount 
        of appropriations requested and the amount of appropriations 
        identified in the most current independent cost estimate;
            ``(B) a description of the importance of the major system to 
        the national security;
            ``(C) an assessment of the consequences for the funding of 
        all programs of the National Foreign Intelligence Program in 
        future fiscal years if the most current independent cost 
        estimate for the major system is accurate and additional 
        appropriations are required in future fiscal years to ensure the 
        continued development or procurement of the major system, 
        including the consequences of such funding shortfalls on the 
        major system and all other programs of the National Foreign 
        Intelligence Program; and
            ``(D) such other information on the funding of the major 
        system as the President considers appropriate.

    ``(d) Inclusion of Estimates in Budget Justification Materials.--The 
budget justification materials submitted to Congress in support of the 
budget of the President shall include the most current independent cost 
estimate under this section for each major system for which 
appropriations are requested in such budget for any fiscal year.

SEC. 319. <<NOTE: 50 USC 403 note.>> IMPROVEMENT OF EQUALITY OF 
            EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES IN THE INTELLIGENCE COMMUNITY.

    (a) Findings.--Congress makes the following findings:
            (1) It is the recommendation of the Joint Inquiry of the 
        Senate Select Committee on Intelligence and the House Permanent 
        Select Committee on Intelligence into Intelligence Community 
        Activities Before and After the Terrorist Attacks of September 
        11, 2001, that the Intelligence Community should enhance 
        recruitment of a more ethnically and culturally diverse 
        workforce and devise a strategy to capitalize upon the unique 
        cultural and linguistic capabilities of first generation 
        Americans.
            (2) The Intelligence Community could greatly benefit from an 
        increased number of employees who are proficient in foreign 
        languages and knowledgeable of world cultures, especially in 
        foreign languages that are critical to the national security 
        interests of the United States. Particular emphasis should be 
        given to the recruitment of United States citizens whose 
        linguistic capabilities are acutely required for the improvement 
        of the overall intelligence collection and analysis effort of 
        the United States Government.
