The lion's share of the work of the Office of the Coordinator for Counterterrorism (S/CT) is conducted within four directorates. These are:
- Homeland Security - promoting an integrated approach to homeland security and international counterterrorism efforts.
- Operations - interfacing with the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) to develop and implement overseas counterterrorism policies.
- Programs, Plans, Press and Public Diplomacy - responsible for a wide range of international cooperative programs designed to strengthen the capabilities of partner nations to combat terrorism.
- Regional and Trans-Regional Affairs - overseeing the development, coordination, and implementation of national, regional and multilateral U.S. counterterrorism policy.
