The combined term for the 17 US intelligence agencies.

The United States Intelligence Community is a federation of 17 US intelligence agencies headed by the Director of National Intelligence (DNI), whose statutory leadership is exercised through the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI).

Member organizations of the IC include intelligence agencies, military intelligence, civilian intelligence and analysis offices and subordinate organizations within federal executive departments.

The Washington Post reported in 2010 that there were 1,271 government organizations and 1,931 private companies in 10,000 locations in the United States that were working on counterterrorism, homeland security, and intelligence, and that the intelligence community as a whole would include 854,000 people holding top-secret clearances.[1] According to a 2008 study by the ODNI, private contractors make up 29% of the workforce in the U.S. intelligence community and account for 49% of their personnel budgets.[2]
