Army Contracting Command
A subordinate command of the U.S. Army Materiel Command, the U.S. Army Contracting Command at Redstone Arsenal enables U.S. Army readiness by contracting for equipment and services vital to the Army’s global mission. From bullets and beans to tanks, aircraft and ammunition, if a Soldier needs it, ACC buys it.
Headquartered at Redstone Arsenal, Alabama, ACC is a two-star command with two subordinate one-star commands and six major contracting centers that provide support to AMC’s life cycle management commands.

ACC provides contracting support to the Soldier as mission requirements emerge and as the Army transforms and operates within the continental United States and throughout the globe.
