About U.S. army Contracting Command

The U.S. Army Contracting Command (ACC), its subordinate organizations and contracting centers enable Army readiness through contracting solutions in support of the Army and Unified Land Operations, anytime, anywhere. As the Army's principal buying agent, ACC ensures Soldiers have what they need to be successful, from food and clothing to bullets and bombs.

Introduction

Headquartered at Redstone Arsenal in Alabama, ACC is a major subordinate command of U.S. Army Materiel Command. ACC has one subordinate one-star command - Mission and Installation Contracting Command (MICC) for locations inside the continental United States and Puerto Rico – and six major contracting centers that provide support to AMC's life cycle management commands.

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

As the Army's principal buying agent, ACC supports Army readiness and modernization by using best practices and expert-level oversight to provide warfighters with premier contracting support. The command accomplishes its global operational missions with a professional workforce of Soldiers, Department of the Army civilians, foreign local nationals and contractors at more than 100 locations worldwide – the sun never sets on ACC.
