CHIPS Articles: DoD Releases 2019 Military Intelligence Program Budget Aligned with National Defense Strategy

DoD Releases 2019 Military Intelligence Program Budget Aligned with National Defense Strategy
By CHIPS Magazine - October 25, 2019
The Department of Defense released the Military Intelligence Program (MIP) appropriated top line budget for FY 2019 Oct. 24. The total MIP budget, which includes both the base budget and Overseas Contingency Operations appropriations, is $21.5 billion and aligns with support to the National Defense Strategy.

The National Defense Strategy, released in 2018 — the first new strategy in a decade — has two main goals:

1. To restore America’s competitive edge by blocking global rivals Russia and China from challenging the U.S. and its allies.

2. To keep those rivals from disrupting the current international order.

The DoD aims to keep the peace through strength by building on America’s military advantage and maintaining important regional balances of power.

Other lines of effort include strengthening partnerships and alliances, increasing military readiness and lethality, and reforming business systems and processes. (See infographic at right.)

DoD noted that releasing the MIP top line figure does not jeopardize any classified activities within the program. No other MIP budget figures or program details will be released as they remain classified for national security reasons.
