67. Memorandum From the Executive Director-Comptroller of the Central Intelligence Agency (White) to Director of Central Intelligence Raborn1

Under date of 8 March, the Clandestine Services sent to our field stations copies of NSAM 341 and background material pertaining to General Taylor’s study and the implications of the establishment of Washington-level machinery to improve coordination and decision-making in the foreign policy field.

Advice to the field was that the statutory responsibilities of the DCI and the Agency are not affected; nor does the new machinery invalidate the NSCID’s or the work of the 303 Committee in its review of our programs and projects.

Field stations were also advised that their relationships with the ambassador and other U.S. mission components remain unchanged.
