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.
