ODNI Releases the Intelligence Community's 11th Annual Statistical Transparency Report

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) today released the Annual Statistical Transparency Report Regarding the Intelligence Community’s (IC) Use of National Security Surveillance Authorities for Calendar Year 2023 (ASTR). The ASTR provides the public both statistics and contextual information regarding the scope of the government’s use of Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act authorities, National Security Letters, and other national security authorities. The report also provides insights into the rigorous, multi-layered oversight framework that governs the IC and which is designed to protect the civil liberties and privacy of persons whose information is acquired pursuant to these national security authorities. The release of this report is consistent with the requirement in the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act of 1978, as amended (codified in 50 U.S.C. § 1873(b)), and the IC’s commitment to the Principles of Intelligence Transparency.

This report, along with prior year ASTRs and additional public information on national security authorities are available on www.dni.gov and www.intel.gov.
