Director of the Central Intelligence Agency (D/CIA) serves as the head of the Central Intelligence Agency, which is part of the United States Intelligence Community. The Director reports to the Director of National Intelligence (DNI). The Director is assisted by the Deputy Director of the Central Intelligence Agency. The Director is a civilian or a general or flag officer of the armed forces nominated by the President, with the concurring or nonconcurring recommendation from the Director of National Intelligence, and must be confirmed by a majority vote of the Senate. Statutes do not specifically set what rank an officer of the armed forces holds while in office, but trends lean to the officer appointed as a four-star general or admiral.
