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.

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?
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.
