Foundation Departments

What is this?

This is a non-official collaborative collection intended as an adjunct to the Russian Branch's Internal Departments page. It's your guide to the many Departments and Divisions referenced on the SCP Wiki.

You may edit this page to include any SCP Foundation Departments or Divisions referenced across the site or in your own works. Due to the fact that there is no canon, multiple unique bureaucratic subdivisions with similar names may be included. Common internal departments — like the O5 Council and Ethics Committee, respectively — are linked to one or more relevant in-universe articles that explain their general purpose or show their work in action.

If you want to add to this, there are, of course, rules for inclusion:

  • Departments must be added in alphabetical order.
  • Departments must be labelled with their most common designation in-universe.
    • Example: "the Department of Abnormalities" is labelled almost exclusively as such, as opposed to "the Abnormalities Department".
  • Added departments must be featured in at least one article.
