Office of National Drug Control Policy

A component of the Executive Office of the President, the Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP) advises the President on drug-control issues, coordinates drug-control activities and related funding across the Federal government, and produces the annual National Drug Control Strategy, which outlines Administration efforts to reduce illicit drug use, manufacturing and trafficking, drug-related crime and violence, and drug-related health consequences.

In addition to the overarching National Strategy, ONDCP has issued supplemental strategies to address drug-related issues along the nation’s Northern and Southern borders. FinCEN has responsibilities within these plans. The strategies list several Strategic Objectives and underlying Supporting Actions required to achieve success. FinCEN is one of several agencies involved in these supporting actions. As examples, FinCEN’s unique expertise is called upon to enhance intelligence coordination between Federal, State and Local entities; enhance bulk currency interdiction capacities; target the illicit use of money services businesses; target the illicit use of electronic payment devices and cross-border wire transfers; and continue intelligence sharing and joint strategic projects with financial intelligence units (FIUs).
