Interagency Threat Assessment and Coordination Group
Definition/Scope: Department of Homeland Security, (DHS), with Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), are leading the Interagency Threat Assessment and Coordination Group (ITACG) to facilitate the flow of threat information from the IC to State, local, tribal, and private sector officials (SLTP). The ITACG was established in response to the President's Guidelines for the creation and establishment of the Information Sharing Environment (ISE). Under the recently enacted 9/11 Commission Act, DHS is sponsoring a contingent of State and local law enforcement and homeland security personnel to work as part of the ITACG Detail within the NCTC. This overall effort will enable the development of language to be used within intelligence reports on terrorist threats and related issues that represents the federally coordinated perspective and is tailored to meet the needs of State, local, Tribal, and territorial governments. This coordination of counterterrorism information within NCTC ensures that products released through existing and appropriate channels of the Federal government will be of one voice and without delay. By directly including State and local partners as members of the ITACG Detail, the language appearing in federally disseminated products can be more focused or tailored in areas that are of greater interest and in a form that is most useful to the United States’ non-Federal partners.
