Director of National Intelligence Mike McConnell on Tuesday announced the creation of a new information-sharing steering committee.
He hopes the group will move the intelligence community beyond the "need to share" philosophy toward a "responsibility to provide" model. The committee will develop a coordinated position for information-sharing activities within and outside the intelligence community.
"This challenge to provide relevant, timely and accurate information to those who need it assumes that we are a community that shares information," McConnell said in a statement. "While we achieved significant milestones in this regard over the past couple of years, we have much work yet to do."
He appointed Dale Meyerrose, an associate director of national intelligence as the chairman of the panel.
