Resource Analysts tee up internal business decisions, develop and implement program analysis methodologies to better evaluate mission impact, formulate and justify CIA's budget requests, assess key expenditure areas to identify efficiencies and adjust priorities, oversee operating year spending, and drive year-round strategic resource planning to inform decision making and convey mission impact.
CIA expects its officers to operate as a team and inclusively leverage expertise to accomplish mission. Therefore, Resource Analysts work closely not only within their assigned component but also with stakeholders and decision makers across CIA, the Intelligence Community, the White House, and Congress.
You will be introduced to the CIA through embedded assignments with mission managers to help you acclimate to the resource analyst profession, leveraging any professional expertise you developed prior to starting your CIA career. Together with the specialized training intended to build your CIA resource analysis tradecraft, these assignments will help forge a strong understanding of the mission impacts underpinning CIA's tactical budget formulation and its more strategic, out-year resource planning. Successively more complex assignments in a variety of mission areas will build your acumen as a well-rounded intelligence officer and resource management professional.
