As a Resource Analyst for the CIA, you will work closely with mission experts, program managers, and Agency leaders to strategically plan, develop, analyze, and prioritize internal program budgets in support of CIA and Intelligence Community mission objectives. Resource analysts serve as trusted resource advisors to CIA components, integrating best practices and leveraging collaborative partnerships to ensure value, impact, and accountability in resource management across the enterprise.
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.
The 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.
As a new employee, 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.
