VE SUMMARY
(U) The FISA Amendments Act
of
2008 (hereinafter "FAA") requires the Attorney General
and the Director
of
National Intelligence to assess compliance with certain procedures and
guidelines issued pursuant to Section 702
of
the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act
of
1978,
50 U.S.C.
§
1801
et seq.,
as amended, (hereinafter
"FISA"
or
"the
Act") and to submit such
assessments to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) and relevant congressionalcommittees at least once every six months. This report sets forth the Department
of
Justice,National Security Division (NSD) and Office
of
Director
of
National Intelligence's (ODNI) ninthjoint compliance assessment under Section 702, covering the period June 1,2012, throughNovember 30, 2012 (hereinafter the "reporting period"). This report accompanies the SemiannualReport
of
the Attorney General Concerning Acquisitions under Section 702
of
the ForeignIntelligence Surveillance Act,which was submitted as required by Section 707(b)(I)
ofFISA
(hereinafter "the Section 707 Report") on March
11
,2013, and covers the same reporting period.(U) Compliance assessment activities have been jointly conducted by NSD and ODNI. Specifically,the joint team consisted
of
members from NSD,
ODNI's
Civil Liberties and Privacy
Office (CLPO),
OONI's
Office
of
General Counsel (OGC),and OONI's Office
of
the Deputy
Director forIntelligence IntegrationlMission Integration Division
(DD/IIIMID).
NSD and ODNIhave assessed the oversight process used since Section 702 was implemented
in
2008,and haveidentified improvements
in
the Intelligence Community personnel's awareness
of
and compliancewith the restrictions imposed by the statute,targeting procedures,minimization procedures and the Attorney General Guidelines.(Sn't'iF) The joint team has found that a vast majority
of
compliance incidents reported inthe Section 707 Reports have been self-identified
by
the agencies, sometimes as a result
of
preparation for the joint reviews.In discussing compliance incidents in this SemiannualAssessment (hereinafter
al
so referred to as the Joint Assessment), the focus is on incidents that havethe greatest potential to impact United States persons' privacy interests;intra-and
in
teragencycommunications; the effect
of
human errors on the conduct
of
acquisition; and the effect
of
technical issues on the conduct
of
acquisition.
(U
/
~
This Joint Assessment finds that the agencies have continued to implement theprocedures and follow the guidelines in a manner that reflects a focused and concerted effort byagency personnel to comply with the requirements
of
Section 702. The personnel involved
in
implementing the authorities are appropriately focused on directing their efforts at non-UnitedStates persons reasonably believed to be located outside the United States for the purpose
of
acquiring foreign intelligence infonnation. Processes are
in
place to implement these authorities
