U.S. intelligence agencies received $54.6 billion in funding in fiscal 2011, the Office of the Director of National Intelligence said today.
The fiscal 2011 funding was up $1.5 billion, or 2.8 percent, from the $53.1 billion in the previous fiscal year. The DNI is requesting $55.5 billion for fiscal 2012, an increase of 1.6 percent.
The figure for the “National Intelligence Program” does not include appropriations for military intelligence programs.
The fiscal 2011 figure was released in an e-mail from the Office of Director of National Intelligence James Clapper.
“Any and all subsidiary information concerning the NIP budget, whether the information concerns particular intelligence agencies or particular intelligence programs, will not be disclosed,” the statement said.
Non-military intelligence spending has risen $7.1 billion, or 15 percent, from $47.5 billion in fiscal 2008.
Clapper has said that intelligence programs will face a double-digit reduction in funding over the next decade due to efforts to reduce the federal deficit.
