ACC realigns two contracting offices
December 5, 2012
REDSTONE ARSENAL, Ala.-- Army Contracting Command has realigned two of its contracting offices that serve overseas customers.
ACC realigned the ACC Planning Cell-Miami, Fla., and the Mission and Installation Contracting Command-Fort Wainwright, Alaska, from the Mission and Installation Contracting Command to the Expeditionary Contracting Command, according to Scott Romero, chief of Current Operations, ACC Operations Group.
The changes were effective Dec. 2. Romero said the realignments provide more efficient contracting support to the war fighter.
"Aligning the regional contracting offices to ECC establishes a direct support relationship that will provide unity of command efforts for U.S Army operations in support of combatant commanders with overseas responsibilities."
Romero said the ACC Planning Cell is now the Regional Contracting Office-Miami. It is a subordinate unit of ECC's 410th Contracting Support Brigade, Joint Base San Antonio-Fort Sam Houston, Texas.
The 410th provides exercise and contingency planning support to U.S. Southern Command, including direct contracting support for the SOUTHCOM commander's office.
MICC-Fort Wainwright became the Regional Contracting Office-Alaska, part of ECC's 413th Contracting Support Brigade, Fort Shafter, Hawaii.
The 413th supports mission operations, provides operational contract support planning and day-to-day installation contracting support to U.S. Pacific Command, U.S. Army Pacific and Army installations in Alaska.
He said the realignment will not result in any permanent change of station moves.
