It was officially organized in Wasghington, DC, as the "Quartermaster Intelligence Agency" by Par I, DAGO 22, 1955...[1] The Quartermaster Technical Intelligence Agency was created with files and personnel previously belonging the Intelligence Branch in the Office of the Quartermaster General which had been established at the start of World War II.

A textbook used in the Army Quartermaster School in 1959, ST 10-120-1, discusses the intelligence program of the Quartermaster Corps including the role of the US Army Quartermaster Intelligence Agency.[3]

The nature and scope of the intelligence program of the Quartermaster Corps and the responsibilities of the CCIA are shown by a statement of quartermaster intelligence interest in 1960.[4]

In 1962, the organization was discontinued with personnel and files concerned with technical intelligence transferred to The United States Army Foreign Science and Technology Center (FSTC) and the personnel and files concerned with area analysis transferred to the US Army Area Intelligence Agency in accordance with DA Reorganization Planning Directive 381-2, 1962[5].
