Perspective: The U.S. Intelligence Budget Landscape -- With IT Segmentation and Five-Year Forecast

LONDON, Dec. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportbuyer.com just published a new market research report:

Perspective: The U.S. Intelligence Budget Landscape -- With IT Segmentation and Five-Year Forecast

This IDC Government Insights Perspective document is not without controversy. Officially, the annual "black" U.S. intelligence budget is not released to the public, although many different organizations, including ours, have released independent estimates over the years. But earlier this year, Edward Snowden, a former Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) employee and National Security Agency (NSA) contractor, disclosed previously classified details about spending for FY13 U.S. intelligence operations. His documents included budget numbers for multiple intelligence operations. Many of these numbers were based on a Congressional Budget Justification document.

Since that time, these numbers have been mentioned by many mainstream publications, including The Washington Post. Because of this, we feel that the numbers are publicly available and can no longer be considered highly confidential and are, instead, open to a broader public discussion. For this reason, we have assembled the numbers shared in this document. We also use this budget as the foundation for a breakout of information technology (IT) spending and a 2012-2017 forecast.
