DOD: Intel budget at $14.6 billion

The Defense Department’s Military Intelligence Program budget request for the coming fiscal year will be $14.6 billion.

The Pentagon does not release any further budget figures or program details as they remain classified for national security reasons.

A 2014 fiscal year Overseas Contingency Operations funding request for the MIP will be submitted at a later date, the Pentagon said.

The MIP budget for FY 2013 was 19.2 billion, but that number includes overseas contingency operations. The MIP budget peaked in FY 2010 at $27 billion, which also includes overseas contingency operations.
