Redirected from JIC

The Joint Intelligence Committee (JIC) is the Cabinet Office[?] body which sets goals for the United Kingdom intelligence agencies, evaluates their output and presents summaries to the Prime Minister. The JIC comprises the heads of the British intelligence agencies, its permanent chair and various specialist staff, seconded according to the subjects under discussion, it normally meets once a week.

There are two kinds of JIC meeting: those at which Australia, Canada, New Zealand and the US are represented; and those attended only by Britons. Britain's European allies do not attend any JIC meeting. The CIA Chief of Station in London normally attends all meetings, leaving when 'domestic' issues are discussed.
