In October 2010, the Intelligence Community (IC) started requiring three mandatory Senior Officer Core Qualification (SOCQ) narratives with all applications. These SOCQs are an additional requirement to the ECQs and TCQs for senior position applications. These SOCQs requires narrative descriptions as to your ability to integrate resources, information, interests, and activities effectively in support of the IC’s mission and to lead and leverage cross organizational collaborative networks to achieve significant mission results. Inherent to this Standard is a deep understanding of the Intelligence enterprise (or other comparable interagency or multi-organizational environment) and a shared commitment to the IC’s core values.
