The aggregate amount of appropriations requested for the FY 2017 National Intelligence Program is $53.5 billion, which includes funding requested to support Overseas Contingency Operations.
Any and all subsidiary information concerning the NIP budget, whether the information concerns particular intelligence agencies or particular intelligence programs, will not be disclosed.
