The Analysis Bureau was a department of Republic Intelligence.
In 21 BBY Baron Orman Tagge was contacted by Galactic Republic Senate Bureau of Intelligence Director Armand Isard. Tagge was enlisted, along with the foremost technical minds in the Galactic Republic, to chair a specialized technology-based committee within the Analysis Bureau. The Techno Union was giving the Separatist Confederacy of Independent Systems the technological edge in the Clone Wars, and Isard sought to bridge the gap by assembling the Republic's own technological geniuses. It was Tagge's job to oversee the development of new initiatives that would match, or surpass those of the Confederacy. He made news with the appointment, making a public statement from the city of Unlos Tagge.
