History Overview

The 413th Contracting Support Brigade traces its lineage to 1898 when the United States Army first entered Hawaiian waters and contracting support began. In 1979, the Army established US Army Western Command (WESTCOM) as a major command and the Army Component of the US Pacific Command. The Principal Assistant Responsible for Contracting (PARC) served as an advisor to the Commanding General on all contracting matters.

In 1989, WESTCOM added US Army Alaska, and in 1990 added US Army Japan. Also in 1990, WESTCOM was renamed US Army Pacific.

In October, 2002, the Office of the PARC was combined with United States Army Garrison - Hawaii and Alaska Directorates of Contracting to form the United States Contracting Element, Pacific (USACEP) under the Army Contracting Agency (ACA). USACEP had the mission to both manage and provide contracting support to Army customers throughout the Pacific Theater less Korea through two Regional Contracting Offices (RCO) and military Contingency Contracting Officers (CCO).

In October, 2008, USACEP was incorporated into the newly established United States Army Expeditionary Contracting Command (ECC) as ECC, Pacific. The next phase of Pacific Theater contracting began on 2 September 2009 with the activation of the 413th Contracting Support Brigade under the Army Contracting Command (ACC) and the Expeditionary Contracting Command. The 413th is the contracting element supporting United States Army Pacific forces and Pacific joint forces.
