The Presidents Foreign Intelligence Advisory Board (PFIAB) was established President Eisenhower in 1956, and it was originally called the "President's Board of Consultants on Foreign Intelligence Activities." The board's primary purpose is to asses the quality of U.S. intelligence products. It was renamed and reorganized by President Bill Clinton on September 13, 1993, when he issued Executive Order 12863. Its members are appointed by, and report directly to the President. The board may have up to 16 members, who generally serve a two-year term, and an Executive Director.

The PFIAB works closely with the Presidents Intelligence Oversight Board, whose members are frequently drawn from the PFIAB.
