4.7.1 General Management Statutes Generally
Annotated Lecture Transcript
In addition to agency-specific organic or enabling acts, framework statutes, and penal laws you also have a fourth and final category of general management statutes that apply to all agencies across the board.
There are a lot of exceptions in many of these statutes for matters related to national security, but, in the absence of a specific exemption, they apply equally to the actions of all intelligence agencies regardless of their function, or cultural aversion to the rule of law.
Ø I’m looking at you, DoD.
Ø Just kidding.
I’m going to run through a list of some of the most important General Management Statutes, to give you an idea of what’s covered.
 This list of General Management Statutes was taken from a CRS Compendium of Management Laws. Congressional Research Serv., General Management Laws: A Compendium (2004), available at https://intelligencelaw.com/files/pdf/law_library/crs/RL30795_5-19-2004.pdf.
