REDSTONE ARSENAL, Alabama (October 12, 2023) – Army Contracting Command officials executed more than 121,000 contract actions valued at $90.4 billion in fiscal 2023 to deliver people, readiness and modernization outcomes to the Army.

The 5,298 Army civilians and 729 Soldiers of ACC units finalized FY23 contracting operations that included $12.3 billion for the Presidential Drawdown Replenishment, $4 billion toward the Ukraine Security Assistance Initiative, $2 billion for the Federal COVID Response, and $586.3 million toward Ukraine operations.

In FY23, a total of $11.33 billion went to American Small Businesses in support of Army priorities. In addition, the ACC Government Purchase Card Program executed more than 650,000 actions valued at approximately $1.1 billion with an estimated $20 million in GPC rebates going back to the Army.

The efforts of the entire ACC enterprise made significant impacts in FY23. Members of ACC-Orlando awarded a $1.8 billion contract for the Flight School Training Support Services in support of the U.S. Army Aviation Center of Excellence that provides training to all Army Aviation flight school students. ACC-Detroit Arsenal officials directly supported Army modernization priorities by awarding the $1.6 billion contract for the XM30, which is the Bradley Fighting Vehicle replacement. The ACC-Redstone Arsenal workforce also was instrumental to the Army modernization effort as they awarded a contract for the Future Long Range Assault Aircraft Weapon System Development. ACC-Aberdeen Proving Ground awarded a $1.95 billion order for PAXLOVID therapeutic product, providing a direct impact on Army readiness and national priorities while mitigating the impact of COVID-19 for Soldiers and Army civilians. ACC-New Jersey officials awarded a total of four new contracts in support of the M1128 High Explosive Projectile, which is a high-explosive bursting munition fired from towed and self-propelled howitzers. ACC-Rock Island contracting professionals played a crucial role in the capacity expansion efforts of M795 155mm metal parts by establishing new U.S.-based full-rate production capability at the Scranton Army Ammunition Plant and General Dynamics Northeastern Pennsylvania and Mesquite, Texas, facilities, increasing capacity of M795 metal parts by 92.25k per month by September 2025. Soldiers and civilians of the Mission and Installation Contracting Command awarded a $3.8 billion contract for services to effect human resource transformation and new Army HR systems implementation across the active Army, Reserve and National Guard.

Brig. Gen. Christine Beeler, the ACC commanding general, praised the command’s workforce ACC for its FY23 performance. “The men and women of ACC continue to deliver the power of Army contracting to WIN – every day, anywhere, and every time! Through predictive contracting support, we enable global sustainment precision and persistence across the spectrum of conflict,” Beeler said. “Fiscal year 2023 was a success because of the incredible efforts of the entire ACC enterprise. From factory to foxhole, we remain dedicated to the warfighter, ensuring they have the material, weapons systems, and equipment they need to deliver combat ready formations to fight and win.”
