Appendix 2 - How to Obtain Access to the Security Cooperation Information Portal (SCIP)

NOTE: The previous references to the SCIP Help Desk email in this document are no longer valid. The updated email address is: sciphelp.dsca@mail.mil.

Also note, effective 31 December 2016, the SCIP Help Desk no longer accepts SCIP registration forms via facsimile (FAX) machine. All forms must be submitted electronically as e-mail attachments to the SCIP Help Desk.

 

If you would like a SCIP account, you should first check to see if your country already has access to SCIP. If so, someone in the appropriate organization within your Ministry of Defense or, in some cases, someone at your embassy in the U.S., will have been designated a “SCIP Token Administrator.” We also call these “host nation token administrators” or “HNTA”. Your country’s SCIP Token Administrator can provide you with a SCIP token. You can then register on-line at https://www.scportal.us.

  • At the very top of the page you can click on "Registration Info" which will bring up another page.

  • On the lower right side of that page click on “SCIP Registration Form”. During registration, you will use a token number from one of your tokens so that the SCIP team at the Defense Security Assistance Development Center (DSADC) can activate and associate that token number to your SCIP account.

  • If you are confused by anything in the form, you can request clarification/assistance from the SCIP Help Desk by e-mailing SCIPHelp.dsca@mail.mil.

  • The registration form is not short and, once you fill it out, you will need to print it, scan, and send it to the SCIP Help Desk as an e-mail attachment.

If your country does not yet have a SCIP Token Administrator, you can designate one, obtain tokens, and then begin creating SCIP accounts. Here’s what you will need to do:

  1. Fill out a letter to designate someone within your government a SCIP Token Administrator.

  2. Send the signed letter as an e-mail attachment to the SCIP Help Desk at SCIPHelp.dsca@mail.mil. In the text of the e-mail, specify the number of tokens you think you need, and provide an address where you would like the tokens sent.  The SCIP team will send the token(s) to that address.  Once you receive the tokens, you will need to inform the SCIP team. They will insert instructions for contacting them in the package with the tokens and in an e-mail to you.

  3. Once you have the tokens, you can fill out a SCIP Registration form on-line at https://www.scportal.us. At the very top of the page you can click on "Registration Info" which will bring up another page. On the lower right side of that page click on “SCIP Registration Form”.  During registration, you will use a token number from one of your tokens so that the SCIP team at the Defense Security Assistance Development Center (DSADC) can activate and associate that token number to your SCIP account.  If you are confused by anything in the form, you can request clarification/assistance from the SCIP Help Desk by e-mailing CIPHelp.dsca@mail.mil. The registration form is not short and, once you fill it out, you will need to print it, scan, and send it to the SCIP Help Desk at SCIPHelp.dsca@mail.mil. as an e-mail attachment.  If you have any questions about the form you can ask the SCIP Help staff for assistance at SCIPHelp.dsca@mail.mil.
