ODNI launches new DNI.gov website
On April 25, the Office of the Director of National Intelligence unveiled a redesign and reorganization of its website. ODNI issued the following statement:
Today the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) will re-launch its official website, DNI.gov, integrating several existing ODNI websites into a single domain sharing a unified content management system (CMS). Through this consolidation – and a complete overhaul of its front-end design – the new DNI.gov presents more, better organized content in a single online location, improving ODNI’s ability to provide information to the public in a flexible, timely and secure manner.
A major component of the redesign effort has been the combination of multiple ODNI websites under the DNI.gov domain, including: NCTC.gov, the website of the National Counterterrorism Center; NCSC.gov, the website of the National Counterintelligence and Security Center; and ICJointDuty.gov, the website of the Intelligence Community Chief Human Capital Office’s Joint Duty Program.
Content from these websites has been fully integrated into DNI.gov. Legacy domains for these newly integrated sites will continue to function indefinitely, seamlessly redirecting site visitors to the new online home for each ODNI office or center.
“The new DNI.gov blends our efforts to be more transparent about our intelligence integration mission with improved technologies that provide a more consistent, flexible and secure experience for our visitors,” said Strategic Communications Chief Michael Thomas, reflecting on the project.
DNI.gov will now offer a fully responsive, accessible design that will adapt for users accessing the site from mobile devices. The site continues to reflect the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) requirement for all public federal websites to provide service through a secure connection—known as Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure (HTTPS)—which ODNI implemented last year. HTTPS ensures that information exchanged between DNI.gov and its users remains private and secure.
ODNI web content now leverages a common platform, providing a scalable and flexible architecture to empower innovative, efficient distribution of key information while reducing the costs of future investments. DNI.gov is powered by an open source CMS, first adopted by ODNI in 2012.
Additional features and content will be added in the coming months to further enhance the experience for visitors to the site and to further align DNI.gov with the evolving federal requirements and industry best practices for public websites.
