Announcing the 2020 Statewide Communications Interoperability Plan (SCIP)
On behalf of the State Interoperability Executive Council (SIEC), I am pleased to present to the 2020 Oregon Statewide Communication Interoperability Plan (SCIP). This SCIP represents Oregon’s continued commitment to improving emergency communications interoperability and supporting the public safety practitioners throughout the state. The SCIP serves as a roadmap toward interoperability within Oregon. It is a living document, which reflects past progress, the timeliness of our strategic goals and initiatives, and projects future issues critical to the delivery of public safety services. The vision of the 2020 SCIP is "Seamless Interoperable Emergency Communications."
Representatives from Oregon’s State Interoperability Executive Council (SIEC) and its subcommittees collaborated with public safety and emergency communications stakeholders from across the state to update the SCIP with actionable and measurable goals and objectives that have champions identified to ensure completion. These goals and objectives focus on governance, technology, and funding sustainability, and are designed to support our state in planning for new technologies and to assist with navigation of the ever-changing emergency communications ecosystem. They also incorporate the newly established State Interoperability Markers which describe Oregon’s level of interoperability maturity by measuring the state’s progress against 25 markers.
The 2020 Oregon SCIP was designed to be cross jurisdictional and applicable across different levels of government. As we continue to enhance interoperability and embrace new technologies, we must remain dedicated to improving our ability to communicate regardless of operational boundaries for the good of all Oregonians. With help from public safety practitioners, emergency communications stakeholders, and our private sector partners statewide, we will work to achieve the goals set forth in this SCIP and become a nationwide model for statewide interoperability.

SCIP Implementation Report
Oregon's SCIP incorporates goals and objectives that are specific and measurable, and includes timelines and responsible champions to ensure progress is made toward their completion. The SCIP Implementation Report provides updates on the state's work in achieving these initiatives as well as the strategic vision identified in the SCIP. This report is generally updated following SIEC Quarterly meetings.
As we begin to focus and make progress on the objectives outlined in the newly released 2020 SCIP, the Implementation Report will be posted here.
