After the Intelligence Reform and Terrorism Prevention Act of 2004 created a new Director of National Intelligence, the position of Director of Central Intelligence (DCI), which had the dual roles of heading the United States intelligence community and the Central Intelligence Agency proper, a new position of Director of the Central Intelligence Agency (DCIA) was created. The DCIA is responsible for the remaining functions of the CIA, which include a very wide range of intelligence analysis and research into intelligence methodology, as well as being in charge of the clandestine human-source intelligence and some covert action capabilities organization of the U.S. government, sharing responsibility for covert action with military organizations.
