The U.S. Senate Select Committee on Intelligence (SSCI) was created by the Senate on May 19, 1976, to "oversee and make continuing studies of the intelligence activities and programs of the United States Government," to "submit to the Senate appropriate proposals for legislation and report to the Senate concerning such intelligence activities and programs," and to "provide vigilant legislative oversight over the intelligence activities of the United States to assure that such activities are in conformity with the Constitution and laws of the United States."

The SSCI also provides advice and consent on the nominations of certain presidentially appointed intelligence officials.
