History of NCPC
at Liberty Crossing
The National Counterproliferation Center (NCPC) was formally established by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) November 21, 2005.
NCPC’s creation was mandated by the Intelligence Reform and Terrorism Prevention Act, signed by President Bush on December 17, 2004, and recommended by the Commission on the Intelligence Capabilities of the United States Regarding Weapons of Mass Destruction, which delivered its report to the President on March 31, 2005.
The ODNI’s charter for NCPC states that it shall be the primary organization within the Intelligence Community for managing, coordinating, and integrating planning, collection, exploitation, analysis, interdiction and other activities relating to weapons of mass destruction, related delivery systems, materials and technologies, and intelligence support to United States Government efforts and policies to impede such proliferation.
