Table 6. Intelligence Values

Source: Brei

Accuracy: All sources and data must be evaluated for the possibility of technical error, misperception, and

hostile efforts to mislead.

Objectivity: All judgments must be evaluated for the possibility of deliberate distortions and manipulations

due to self-interest.

Usability: All intelligence communications must be in a form that facilitates ready comprehension and

immediate application. Intelligence products must be compatible with a customer’s capabilities for

receiving, manipulating, protecting, and storing the product.

Relevance: Information must be selected and organized for its applicability to a customer’s requirements,

with potential consequences and significance of the information made explicit to the customer’s

circumstances.

Readiness: Intelligence systems must be responsive to the existing and contingent intelligence

requirements of customers at all levels of command.

Timeliness: Intelligence must be delivered while the content is still actionable under the customer’s

circumstances.
