About The SCIP

The SCIP (Security Cooperation Information Portal) was established by the Defense Security Cooperation Agency (DSCA) to enable International Customers, customer agents, and United States Government personnel, with appropriate permissions, to access a variety of features, which are gathered into "Communities". Some Communities provide the ability to: (1) view Foreign Military Sales (FMS) case, line, requisition, and Supply Discrepancy Report (SDR)-level information obtained daily from all U.S. Military Department (MILDEP) Case Execution systems and the tri-service Case Development system (DSAMS); and (2) input a variety of FMS MILSTRIP and MILSTRIP-like transactions, which are partially validated in the SCIP, and then passed directly to the appropriate MILDEP Case Execution system for processing. For more information about SCIP and SCIP Communities, please review the SCIP Background.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is there a point of contact where I can get further information or assistance on the SCIP system?

DSCA.SCIPHELP@Mail.mil

What DSCA policy memos outline the procedures for requesting an initial issue and follow-on replacement of SCIP tokens?

The relevant policy memos are DSCA 03-11, DSCA 05-17, DSCA 06-30, and DSCA 11-58. You can access all of those policy memos on the DSCA SAMM web page at http://www.samm.dsca.mil

Exactly what is the Security Cooperation Information Portal (SCIP)?

Essentially, the Security Cooperation Information Portal is a system that uses powerful search engines to pull in data from a variety of current Security Cooperation systems. Thus, it provides access to current international logistics and financial management information from many systems including DSAMS, DIFS, CISIL, MISIL, SAMIS, EFTS, and EUM.

Who are the primary users of SCIP?

Any USG and International Purchaser personnel involved with management of FMS and Building Partner Capacity (BPC) cases should be interested in and using the SCIP system.

What is the SCIP URL address?

https://www.scportal.us/home/

Do I need special software on my PC to access the SCIP?

No. All you need is a web browser such as MS Internet Explorer (MSIE).

I've tried going to internet sites with a ".mil" address. Sometimes I get there, but many times I get various error messages saying I'm not allowed access. Will I have the same problem accessing SCIP?

This is another very good advantage of the SCIP system. It is at a .us address and you will not be blocked by the usual .mil firewall. Your IE browser does, however, need to have the current DoD Root certificate and correct security settings checked. You should contact the SCIP Help Desk (DSCA.SCIPHELP@Mail.mil) If you have any questions or issues on accessing SCIP.

Can I increase my knowledge about SCIP's capabilities and obtain training even without a SCIP account?

Yes, you can download the DISCS SCIP Practical Exercises and Handbook from Relevant Documents above and do process, logistics, finance, and advanced SCIP exercises even without having a SCIP account.

Commandant's Corner

...I mentioned the Reaffirmation of Accreditation Visit Team, and that their visit would culminate the Self-Study conducted by our faculty and staff over the past year. The Self-Study documents the activity dealing with 10 Standards of the evaluation with a range of areas from Educational Programs to Strategic Planning to Student Services and Activities to name only three of them. While awaiting the final written report of the visit, I am pleased to tell you that DISCS received no findings and two commendables! The first commendable pertained to our internal faculty and staff development program – a major effort over the last couple of years which has produced great results in getting our new personnel proficient in their duties. It has made a dramatic change in terms of getting faculty qualified and on the platform more quickly. The second commendable reflects on the SC community and not simply DISCS as it recognized the effort that goes into our curriculum update/validation process which includes the subject matter expertise of our constituency organizations.

We thank you for your support in that process, which will be even more important in the future as we address the Security Cooperation Workforce (SCW) competencies going forward. I also need to note that the team talked to the classes while in session during their visit (in addition to a variety of DISCS personnel). The class feedback on courseware, faculty knowledge/interaction, etc., was nothing short of fully supportive and very noteworthy were their comments about the quality and how well the online/prerequisite courses prepared them for their primary/resident courses. I view the results of the visit as reflecting on our entire workforce and community, and not simply on DISCS. We can’t be effective without you, and I thank all of you – regardless of your role in SC – for your support! We will not have the final report and ultimate approval of the reaffirmation for several months as the COE Staff and Board have to review before the formal approval. I’ll provide that update when it does happen.

DISCS continues to focus much of its effort to curriculum development in line with SCW certification efforts to provide training in line with the competencies developed for the workforce. More to follow on to our website regarding the implementation of new courses – and when the alpha/beta testing begins for the courseware. Again, stand by for announcements and registration opportunities for these and other courses as each nears readiness. In the meantime we continue with our schedule and the conduct of legacy courses while new courses are in development.

A note to address concerns over “credit” for the legacy courses. As we move ahead with the new courseware, we will transfer credit to the maximum extent possible (that won’t be lost) and will ultimately save our students effort in only needing to accomplish additional courseware to make up gaps critical for them. Time and effort will not be wasted by our students. As we transition through the next 1-3 years, students’ educational accomplishments will count towards filling future educational gaps and/or continuing education.

Remember, DISCS centrally funds the TDY expenses for our USG students. All course information and the ability to register for them resides on this website whether for classes conducted at our WPAFB campus, our NCR campus, or other location where we send our teams.

I look forward to updating you here – to keep you informed as DISCS keeps pace with all pieces of the SCW Development Program.

Sincerely,

Dr. Ron Reynolds

Commandant's Corner

The reaffirmation process began with the institution completing a comprehensive Self-Study, which began in 2018 and resulted in final submission to COE in early 2019, and the hosting of a reaffirmation team visit during April 2019. The team visit resulted in NO FINDINGS OF NON-COMPLIANCE and TWO COMMENDABLE STANDARDS.

Congratulations and thank you to all who contributed to this effort. Most of all, we thank the many students who have placed, and continue to place their trust and confidence in our institution.

Sincerely,
Dr. Ron Reynolds
Commandant

International Affairs Certification Program Ended!

This ends the International Affairs Certification Program (IACP). No new IACP certifications will be authorized. DSCA will stop supporting management of the IACP database effective October 1, 2019.

The Department of Defense IACP, which DSCA initiated in 2001, has served to improve the training, education, and experience of more than 4,000 individuals in our security cooperation. The establishment of the DoD Security Cooperation Workforce Development Program (SCWDP), as required in IO USC, §384, obviates the need for the IACP. The SCWDP certification program will be mandatory for all members of the security cooperation workforce, with competency¬based training, continuous learning, and experiential requirements. The SCWDP certification program will be phased in over the next two years, beginning fourth quarter Fiscal Year 2019.

Sweeping Curriculum Changes in Progress

The purpose of this program is to improve the quality and professionalism of the SC workforce (SCWF) in order to ensure it has the capacity, in both personnel and skills, needed to properly perform its mission, provide appropriate support to the assessment, planning and monitoring, execution, evaluation, and administration of security cooperation programs and activities. It will also ensure that personnel assignments match the appropriate level of expertise and experience required security cooperation programs and activities of the DoD and the execution of security assistance programs and activities.

To fulfill these requirements, the Defense Security Cooperation Agency (DSCA) is developing a security cooperation workforce (SCW) Certification program. The SCW certification program contains three major components: SC competencies based training, SC experience requirements and continuous learning requirements. DSCA is finalizing the program requirements and will publish guidance in due course. While the details of this program are being finalized, the training courses to support that certification program are currently under Alpha testing. The updated curriculum is DoD SC competency based and support Basic, Intermediate, Advanced, and Expert levels of certification.

All new courses will have equivalency legacy courses identified for certification purposes (when applicable courses previously existed), providing workforce members the ability to use most courses previously completed at DISCS to meet the new certification requirements. All DISCS courses completed during the transition phase can be used to fulfill these new certification requirements. Details on each course will be added to the DISCS online catalog as they are completed and prior to implementation of the certification program.

Please see our online catalog for further details on each course. We will continue to add course information as the courses are developed.
