Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) Framework

Project Overview: Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) is now the single categorical designation for information in the information sharing environment of the executive branch of the federal government. It was previously referred to as sensitive but unclassified (SBU) information. Across the federal government, there are at least 107 unique markings and over 130 different labeling or handling processes and procedures for SBU information. Inconsistency in SBU policies not only impedes the timeliness, accuracy, and steady flow of terrorism information that should be shared, but often fails to protect information that should not be shared. The Science and Technology Command, Control and Interoperability Division's (CID) CUI Framework project will aid efforts to effectively designate, mark, safeguard, and disseminate information labeled as CUI in order to standardize practices and improve information sharing. The CUI Framework will not classify or declassify new or additional information. This project is part of the Knowledge Management Tools program area of CID
