About U.s. army Contracting Command

Headquartered at Redstone Arsenal in Alabama, ACC is a two-star command with two subordinate one-star commands – the Expeditionary Contracting Command (for locations outside the continental United States) and the Mission and Installation Contracting Command (for locations inside the continental United States) – and six major contracting centers that provide support to AMC’s life cycle management commands.

These centers also provide contracting support to several program executive offices and program managers supporting the U.S. Army’s major acquisition programs.

From food and clothing to bullets and bombs; from tanks, trucks, and HMMWVs to boats and aircraft; from their weapons to the installations where they work and live with their families, ACC ensures U.S. Soldiers have what they need to be successful.

As the Army’s business conduit, ACC offers the contracting expertise of some of the best-trained people in the Army, ready to support the warfighter while ensuring responsible stewardship of taxpayers’ funds.

ACC ensures contracting support to the Soldier as mission requirements emerge and as the Army transforms and operates within the continental United States and throughout the globe.

An international business enterprise, the command executed more than 173 contract actions in fiscal year 2015 valued at more than $54.6 billion, which is equal to 73 percent of the Army’s contract dollars and 12 percent of the total dollars spent on contracts by the entire federal government. ACC accomplishes this with morethan 6,000 military and civilian employees at more than 100 locations worldwide.

The ECC provides effective and agile contracting service across the full spectrum of military operations for U.S. Army Service Component Commanders in support of Army and joint operations as well as to other defense organizations at locations outside the continental United States.

ECC accomplishes this vital mission through nine contracting support brigades, 17 contracting battalions, and 108 contracting teams throughout the world. In fiscal 2015 ECC completed more than 28,600 contract actions valued at more than $1.87 billion.

In 2015, ECC is deploying a CSB and two CBns to support Operation Freedom’s Sentinel in Afghanistan and the transition of the contracting mission from the U.S. Central Command Joint Theater Support Contracting Command to the Army as the Lead Service for Contracting.

The MICC provides contracting support for the Soldier across Army commands, installations, and activities located throughout the continental United States and Puerto Rico.

Its customers include the U.S. Army Installation Management Command, U.S. Army Forces Command, U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command, U.S. Army North, U.S. Army Reserve Command, and U.S. Army Medical Command. The MICC consists of a field directorate office and 32 field offices. In fiscal 2015, the command executed more than 36,600 contract actions valued at more than $5.17 billion.
