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

...announcements and registration opportunities for these and other courses as each nears readiness.

DISCS will continue to teach legacy courses while new courses are developed. While there may not be a 100 percent transfer of credit for a legacy course to a new course due to gaps in coverage of competencies, we will endeavor to grant as much transferrable credit as possible. The legacy courses are still valuable to the workforce (provide needed training) and I highly encourage the workforce to continue to attend them as long as they remain available. Note that as we get closer to the fall, and in order to dedicate faculty efforts to curriculum development, we anticipate reductions in some of our legacy courses – to make the new courseware available more quickly.

I had previously noted the establishment of the DISCS location in the National Capital Region (NCR). Staffing there has continued to expand and construction has begun on facilities in Crystal City Gateway 2. If all goes as planned, the construction will be completed early this summer and we’ll be able to conduct classes soon thereafter. DISCS faculty at WPAFB will continue to support DISCS-NCR courses in both interim and long term operations. This is to help ensure the important integration among our faculty, DSCA headquarters personnel and representatives of organizations and agencies in the NCR remains robust.

Remember, DISCS centrally funds the TDY expenses for our students. All course information and the ability to register for them resides on this website.

Lastly, I’d note that DISCS is coming up on its Reaffirmation of Accreditation Visit by the Council on Occupational Education (COE). The team will visit our WPAFB location on 8-12 April. This culminates the Self-Study activity by our faculty and staff documenting 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. We look forward to that team’s visit – these occur generally every 5-6 years with annual updates provided to COE in years where there is no visit.

Will update this as often as possible to keep you informed in a timely way in this fast-paced environment.

Sincerely,

Dr. Ron Reynolds
