appropriations for fiscal year 2005 for intelligence and 
intelligence-related activities of the United States 
Government, the Community Management Account, and the Central

actions described in the House bill, the Senate amendment, the 
respective committee reports, and classified annexes

The House recedes in part and the Senate recedes in part.
      Subsection (b) authorizes 310 full-time personnel for the 
Intelligence Community Management Staff for fiscal year 2005 
and provides that such personnel may be permanent employees of 
the Staff or detailed from various elements of the United 
States Government. The House bill and Senate amendment were 
identical.
      Subsection (c) authorizes additional appropriations and 
personnel for the CMA as specified in the classified Schedule 
of Authorizations and authorizes additional amounts to remain 
available for research and development through September 30, 
2006.
      Subsection (d) requires that, except as provided in 
Section 113 of the National Security Act of 1947, during fiscal 
year 2005, personnel from another element of the United States 
Government may be detailed to an element of the CMA on a 
reimbursable basis, or for temporary situations of less than 
one year on a non-reimbursable basis.
      Subsection (e) authorizes $42,322,000 of the amount 
authorized in subsection (a) to be made available for the 
National Drug Intelligence Center (NDIC). Subsection (e) 
requires the DNI to transfer these funds to the Attorney 
General to be used for NDIC activities under the authority of 
the Attorney General and subject to Section 103(d)(1) of the 
National Security Act. The House recedes in part and the Senate 
recedes in part.
Sec. 105. Incorporation of reporting requirements
      Section 105 is similar to Section 105 of the Senate 
amendment. The House bill had no similar provision. The House 
recedes to the Senate.
Sec. 106. Specific authorization of funds for intelligence or 
        intelligence-related activities for which fiscal year 2004 
        appropriations exceed amounts authorized
      Section 106 is similar to Section 106 of the Senate 
amendment. The House bill had no similar provision. The House 
recedes to the Senate.
Sec. 107. Preparation and submittal of reports, reviews, studies, and 
        plans relating to intelligence activities of Department of 
        Defense or Department of Energy
      Section 107 is a slightly modified version of Section 107 
of the Senate amendment. The House bill had no similar 
provision. The House recedes with an amendment.

 TITLE II--CENTRAL INTELLIGENCE AGENCY RETIREMENT AND DISABILITY SYSTEM

Sec. 201. Authorization of appropriations
      Section 201 authorizes appropriations of $239,400,000 for 
the Central Intelligence Agency Retirement and Disability Fund. 
Section 201 of the House bill and Section 201 of the Senate 
amendment were identical.

                     TITLE III--GENERAL PROVISIONS

Sec. 301. Increase in employee compensation and benefits authorized by 
        law
      Section 301 is identical to Section 301 of the Senate 
amendment and the House bill.
Sec. 302. Restriction on conduct of intelligence activities
      Section 302 is identical to Section 302 of the Senate 
amendment and the House bill.
Sec. 303. Chief Information Officer
      Section 303 establishes a Chief Information Officer (CIO) 
to assist the DNI in carrying out the DNI's responsibilities. 
The CIO is established within the Office of the DNI. The CIO 
will serve as the CIO of the Intelligence Community, subject to 
the DNI's direction. The CIO shall manage activities relating 
to the information technology infrastructure and enterprise 
architecture requirements of the Intelligence Community and 
have procurement approval authority over all information 
technology items related to the enterprise architectures of all 
Intelligence Community components. The CIO will also direct and 
manage all information technology-related procurement for the 
Intelligence Community and ensure that all expenditures for 
information technology and research and development activities 
are consistent with the Intelligence Community enterprise 
architecture and the strategy of the DNI for such architecture. 
The section also provides that the CIO may not serve as the 
chief information officer of any other department or agency, or 
component thereof, of the United States.
      Enterprise architecture is the foundation upon which 
information technology investment and strategy should be based. 
Therefore, the managers expect the CIO to move expeditiously to 
undertake a formal Intelligence Community-wide enterprise 
architecture effort. The managers also strongly support the 
House report language detailing the ramifications of failing to 
link Intelligence Community-wide information technology 
investments to a true community-wide enterprise architecture 
(H. Rep. 108-558, June 21, 2004).
Sec. 304. Improvement of authorities relating to National Virtual 
        Translation Center
      Section 304 amends Section 313 of the Intelligence 
Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2003 (Pub. L. 107-306; 116 
Stat. 2391; 50 U.S.C. 404n) to clarify the functions of the 
National Virtual Translation Center (NVTC). The provision also 
specifies that the NVTC may perform its duties in a certified 
secure facility or in any other facility determined appropriate 
by the DNI. This section was passed in the House bill as 
Section 615. The Senate recedes with amendments.
      Section 313 of the Intelligence Authorization Act for 
Fiscal Year 2003 mandated that the Director of Central 
Intelligence (DCI) retain ``direct supervision and control'' 
over the NVTC. The Conferees note with concern that despite 
this mandate the DCI has failed to fully integrate the NVTC 
into the Intelligence Community and play a meaningful role in 
its management. Instead, the activities of the NVTC are 
supervised by the Director of the Federal Bureau of 
Investigation (FBI), with little or no input by the DCI. While 
participation of the FBI Director is imperative, Congress 
stresses again the importance of the direct ``supervision and 
control'' by the head of the Intelligence Community, now the 
DNI, of NVTC activities.
      The Conferees are also concerned that non-FBI 
Intelligence Community elements have not fully leveraged NVTC 
resources. The Conferees continue to believe that a fully 
employed NVTC will perform an important function for the 
Intelligence Community. The use of advanced information 
technology will expand the ability of translators located in 
disparate locations to apply their skills to the backlog of 
collected intelligence information stored in voice or data form 
throughout the Intelligence Community. Intelligence information 
that is not translated and not analyzed constitutes a gross 
waste of our limited collection resources. The Conferees expect 
the DNI to commit the necessary attention, staffing, and 
resources to ensure that the NVTC can effectively perform its 
necessary function.
Sec. 305. Intelligence assessment on sanctuaries for terrorists
      Section 305 requires the DNI to submit a report to 
Congress on terrorist sanctuaries. The House bill had no such 
provision. The House recedes to the Senate.
Sec. 306. Sense of Congress on the availability to Congress of 
        information on Iraq Oil-for-Food Program of the United Nations
      Section 306 calls on heads of Intelligence Community 
elements to share with Congress information they have about the 
United Nations Oil-for-Food Program. The Senate recedes.

                 TITLE IV--CENTRAL INTELLIGENCE AGENCY

Sec. 401. Permanent Extension of Central Intelligence Agency Voluntary 
        Separation Incentive Program
      The House bill and Senate amendment versions of this 
provision were similar.
Sec. 402. Intelligence operations and cover enhancement authority
      Section 402 amends the Central Intelligence Agency Act of 
1949 by adding a new section that enhances the cover of certain 
Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) employees. This new section 
provides that, notwithstanding any other provision of law, the 
Director of the CIA (DCIA), in order to protect intelligence 
operations and sources and methods, may: pay salaries, 
allowances, retirement, insurance, and other benefits to CIA 
employees under non-official cover in a manner consistent with 
their cover; exempt a category of CIA employees from certain 
U.S. Government rules and regulations; allow certain CIA 
employees to claim and receive the same Federal and state tax 
treatment available to individuals in the private sector; and 
allow certain CIA employees to receive Social Security benefits 
based on the Social Security contributions made by such 
employees. The DCIA, in formulating regulations under this 
section, should ensure that such regulations adequately 
recognize the interests of CIA employee family members, 
including spouses and children, and former spouses. The House 
bill had no similar provision. The House recedes.

          TITLE V--DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE INTELLIGENCE MATTERS

Sec. 501. National Security Agency emerging technologies panel
      Section 501 amends the National Security Agency Act of 
1959 to establish the National Security Agency Emerging 
Technologies Panel and exempts it from the Federal Advisory 
Committee Act. The Senate bill had no similar provision. The 
Senate recedes.
Sec. 502. Use of funds for counterdrug and counterterrorism activities 
        for Colombia
      Section 502 allows funds available for intelligence and 
intelligence-related activities to be used to support a unified 
campaign against drug traffickers and terrorist organizations 
in Colombia. The House bill had no similar provision. The House 
recedes with amendments.

                          TITLE VI--EDUCATION

            Subtitle A--National Security Education Program

Sec. 601. Annual funding
      Section 601 amends the David L. Boren National Security 
Education Act of 1991 (Title VIII of the Intelligence 
Authorization Act of 1992 (P.L. 102-183; 105 Stat. 1271)) to 
authorize an appropriation to the CMA to support the 
scholarship, fellowship and grant programs under the National 
Security Education Program (NSEP). The Intelligence 
Authorization Act of 1992 created the NSEP, along with the 
National Security Education Trust Fund as a means of funding 
the NSEP. That trust fund has been nearly depleted, and an 
appropriation of $8,000,000 is authorized for fiscal year 2005 
to maintain the NSEP.
Sec. 602. Improvements to the National Flagship Language Initiative
      Section 602 amends the David L. Boren National Security 
Education Act of 1991 to authorize an appropriation of 
$6,000,000 for fiscal year 2005 to the CMA for the expansion of 
the grant program for institutions of higher education under 
the National Flagship Language Initiative (NFLI). The section 
details certain service obligations required for undergraduate 
and graduate students and federal employees who receive 
training in programs under the NFLI. The provision also seeks 
to increase the number of qualified institutions that receive 
grants under the NFLI.
Sec. 603. Scholarship program for English language studies for heritage 
        community citizens of the United States within the National 
        Security Education Program
      Section 603 amends the David L. Boren National Security 
Education Act of 1991 to establish a scholarship program within 
NSEP for English language studies for heritage community 
citizens of the United States. The scholarship program is 
designed to enable native speakers of languages that are 
considered critical to the national security interests of the 
United States to attain English language proficiency. The 
ultimate goal is to increase the scholarship recipient's 
English language proficiency to the level where a valuable 
contribution can be made by the recipients to the Intelligence 
Community. The section establishes certain service obligations 
for work in a position within the Department of Defense or the 
Intelligence Community. The section authorizes an appropriation 
of $2,000,000 for fiscal year 2005 to the CMA to establish the 
scholarship program.

  Subtitle B--Improvement in Intelligence Community Foreign Language 
                                 Skills

Sec. 611. Foreign language proficiency for advancement to certain 
        senior level positions in the Central Intelligence Agency
      Section 611 amends the National Security Act of 1947 to 
establish a language proficiency requirement for those 
individuals appointed to Senior Intelligence Service (SIS) 
positions within the CIA's Directorate of Operations (DO) and 
Directorate of Intelligence (DI). In order to be eligible for 
promotion to SIS positions within the DO or DI, individuals 
must be certified as having professional speaking and reading 
proficiency of at least level 3 on the Interagency Language 
Roundtable Language Skills Level or commensurate proficiency 
indicator. The DCIA is tasked with providing to Congress a 
report explaining any waivers of this requirement for any 
position or category of positions.
Sec. 612. Advancement of foreign languages critical to the intelligence 
        community
      Section 612 amends the National Security Act of 1947 to 
authorize the DNI and the Secretary of Defense to establish a 
program to advance foreign language skills in languages that 
are critical to the national security interests of the United 
States. The program may include funding, in the form of grants, 
contracts, cooperative agreements, or other appropriate 
mechanisms, by the Intelligence Community of educational 
institutions and instructors for the purchase of materials, 
supplies, and other resources, as well as the generation of 
instructional materials needed to advance foreign language 
skills.
      The section allows the Intelligence Community to enter 
into educational partnership agreements with educational 
institutions to encourage and enhance the study of foreign 
languages. These partnership agreements would allow the 
Intelligence Community to lend surplus equipment, provide 
personnel to teach courses and develop curriculum, offer 
academic and career advice, and provide cash awards. The 
section authorizes the Intelligence Community to accept 
voluntary services in support of partnership activities. The 
section also authorizes the Intelligence Community to assign 
employees in analytical positions requiring foreign language 
expertise to accredited institutions of higher education for 
training in foreign languages.
Sec. 613. Pilot project on Civilian Linguist Reserve Corps
      Section 613 requires the DNI to conduct a pilot project 
to establish a Civilian Linguist Reserve Corps comprised of 
United States citizens with advanced proficiency in foreign 
languages. These individuals could be called up by the DNI to 
perform federal service in areas relating to their language 
expertise. The section authorizes an appropriation for a three-
year pilot project. In conducting the pilot project, the DNI 
should take into account findings and recommendations in the 
CLRC feasibility report required by the Intelligence 
Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2003 (P.L. 107-306).
Sec. 614. Report on status, consolidation, and improvement of 
        intelligence education programs
      Section 614 requires the DNI to submit to Congress no 
later than June 1, 2005, a report on the status of intelligence 
education programs. The report is to include recommendations 
about legislative or administrative action that would be 
appropriate to consolidate, enhance the coordination of, or 
otherwise improve intelligence education programs. This 
provision was added in lieu of creating the Assistant Director 
of Central Intelligence for Language and Education provided for 
in the House bill.
Sec. 615. Report on recruitment and retention of qualified instructors 
        of the Defense Language Institute
      Section 615 requires the Secretary of Defense to conduct 
a study on methods to improve the recruitment and retention of 
qualified language instructors at the Foreign Language Center 
at the Defense Language Institute. In preparing this report, 
the Secretary is to consider, as a means of recruitment and 
retention, providing permanent resident alien status to those 
qualified language instructors who are in the United States in 
temporary status.

                      TITLE VII--TERRORISM MATTERS

Sec. 701. Information on terrorist groups that seek weapons of mass 
        destruction and groups that have been designated as foreign 
        terrorist organizations
      Section 701 would require the inclusion, in the State 
Department's annual country reports on terrorism, of 
information on terrorist groups that seek weapons of mass 
destruction, and groups that have been designated as FTOs under 
Section 219 of the Immigration and Nationality Act, as amended.

                       TITLE VIII--OTHER MATTERS

Sec. 801. Effective date
      Except as otherwise indicated in a particular section 
within this Act, this section provides that this Act shall take 
effect immediately upon enactment because many of its 
provisions are of immediate operational and practical concern 
for the Intelligence Community.
Sec. 802. Construction of references to the Director of Central 
        Intelligence
Sec. 803. Savings provisions relating to discharge of certain functions 
        and authorities
      Sections 802 and 803 clarifies how certain authorities 
shall be exercised, and who shall exercise them, during the 
transitional period between enactment of this Act, its 
effective date, the appointment of certain officers, and the 
enactment and effective date of the Intelligence Reform and 
Terrorism Prevention Act of 2004.

                            General Matters

      The Conferees are concerned about the Intelligence 
Community's ability to efficiently and effectively manage the 
security clearance process for companies that comprise its 
industrial base.
      The Conferees direct the head of the Intelligence 
Community to undertake a study of all dimensions of this 
problem. In accomplishing this effort, the study should take 
into account the excellent work already done by industry groups 
in studying this problem and also seek additional information 
and views from industry. The head of the Intelligence Community 
should consult with the House and Senate Intelligence 
Committees on the structure, objectives and form of the final 
report, which should be delivered to the Intelligence 
Committees in unclassified form (with a classified annex, if 
necessary) no later than June 1, 2005.
      Senators Rockefeller, Levin, Wyden and Durbin object to 
an item in the classified schedule of authorizations that 
provides for continued funding of a major acquisition program 
that they believe is unnecessary and the cost of which they 
believe is unjustified. They believe that the funds for this 
item should be expended on other intelligence programs that 
will make a surer and greater contribution to national 
security. For this reason, which is more fully explained in the 
classified record of the conference, they have not signed the 
conference report.

                From the Permanent Select Commission on 
                Intelligence, for consideration of the House 
                bill and the Senate amendment, and 
                modifications committed to conference.
