The Defense Civilian Intelligence Personnel System (DCIPS) incorporates all DoD intelligence positions under a single, performance-based, mission-focused personnel management system. DCIPS serves as the common Defense Intelligence Enterprise system that helps to attract, retain, and reward the workforce needed to successfully carry out critical national security missions. It supports consistency and transparency across the Defense Intelligence Enterprise while simultaneously providing the flexibilities to embrace the individual cultures of the DoD Components with DCIPS positions.

Our Mission
DCIPS is the human resource management system for the Department of Defense (DoD) Intelligence Community (DOD IC). DCIPS was authorized by Congress to provide the Department of Defense Intelligence Components (IC) with independent personnel authorities necessary to perform both the Defense and National Intelligence missions. At the heart of DCIPS is the ability to be rewarded for the contributions you make to your organization's vital mission.


Professional Development
Several opportunities are available for DoD employees, including DCIPS employees, to continue their training, education and professional development within the Intelligence and Security field. Employees may learn more about professional development initiatives and take advantage of learning opportunities by way of the following sites. Note, these sites may require DoD credentials for access.

The DoD Intelligence Training and Education Board (DITEB) is the community of practice for the DoD Intelligence training and education enterprise.

The Intelligence Fundamentals Professional Certification (IFPC) program was developed to accomplish the goal set forth by the Under Secretary of Defense for Intelligence (USD(I)) to professionalize the defense intelligence workforce. The IFPC program has established a common standard of the fundamental knowledge and skills expected of all who currently serve in and support, and those who hope to serve in and support, the DoD Intelligence Enterprise (DIE).

The National Intelligence University (NIU) is the Intelligence Community's degree granting institution with a far-reaching mission to educate and prepare intelligence officers to meet current and future challenges to the national security of the United States. Students may obtain a Bachelor or Masters of Science in Intelligence.
