CLPT leads the integration of civil liberties and privacy protections into the activities of the Intelligence Community. This includes overseeing compliance with privacy and civil liberties in programs administered by the ODNI and ensuring that the use of technology sustains, and does not erode, privacy.

CLPT is additionally responsible for institutionalizing the Principles of Transparency for the Intelligence Community, which guide decision-making on how the IC can offer insight its activities, and perform our vital mission more efficiently and effectively, while ensuring our sources and methods remain protected.

CLPT also champions the Principles of Professional Ethics for the Intelligence Community: Mission, Truth, Lawfulness, Integrity, Stewardship, Excellence and Diversity. These fundamental ethical principles unite professionals across the IC.

Our overarching purpose is to ensure that the IC conducts itself in a manner exemplifying American values and provides confidence that, whether on the public stage, or subject to the sometimes-necessary secrecy our work requires, the IC's actions are lawful and effective, as well as ethical and wise.

As a CLPT Transparency Team member you will have the opportunity for extraordinary impact on the IC's national security mission -- both in the essential support we provide to our national leaders and the fundamental, trust-building investments we make with the American public.
