SCIP Training: Security Cooperation Information Portal (SCIP)
What is the Security Cooperation Information Portal (SCIP)?
A DoD-managed web-based system that provides access to FMS and security cooperation case-related data extracts as well as numerous other capabilities. The SCIP assembles current international logistics and financial management information from FMS legacy systems CISIL, SAMIS, CMCS, MISIL, DSAMS and DIFS, and provides that consolidated information to the purchaser and DoD users in a common format. It provides a secure avenue for information exchange and data assurance.
Who are the primary users of SCIP?
FMS case managers who have need of FMS case information will be interested in the SCIP system. All Security Cooperation Offices (SCOs) who have established FMS cases will also want to use the system.
Is there a point of contact where I can get further information or assistance on the SCIP system?
Yes. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 1-833-DSCA-IMT (1-833-372-2468).
What is the SCIP URL address?
The SCIP URL address is www.scportal.us
Do I need special software on my PC to access the SCIP?
No. All you need is a web browser such as Edge, Firefox, or Chrome.
Many times, when trying to access internet sites with a ".mil" address, I get error messages saying I am not allowed access. Will I have the same problem accessing SCIP?
The SCIP system is on a .mil platform but is reachable from most networks. There is no restriction to access from .mil networks only. If you have an account, you should be able to access the system.
