The Army Contracting Command (ACC) is a contracting services command of the United States Army. "On October 1, 2008, the Army recognized the formal establishment of the Army Contracting Command as a major subordinate command of the U.S. Army Materiel Command. This new Army organization performs the majority of contracting work for the U.S. Army, and consists of two subordinate commands responsible for installation and expeditionary contracting, and other Army contracting elements."
There are three parts to the Army Contracting Command: Expeditionary Contracting Command Brigades, Mission Installation Contracting Commands, and Contracting centers.
