The Army Contracting Agency was restructured in fiscal year (FY) 2009
and became the Army Contracting Command (ACC). As of Oct. 1, the ACC,
which is a subordinate of the Army Materiel Command, has command of six
contracting centers, the Expeditionary Contracting Command and the MICC.
The MICC is made up of seven regional mission contracting centers, nine
mission contracting offices, and 27 installation contracting offices,
including Fort McCoy.
Services offered by the MICC ICO-Fort McCoy include contract
solicitation, award and administration for supplies, services and
Of the contracts the MICC ICO-Fort McCoy manages throughout its entire
region, custodial, grounds maintenance, waste management and snow
removal are among the largest.
What have they done?
In FY 2011, the MICC ICO-Fort McCoy provided its customers with $132
million worth of contracted services and completed more than 2,200
contract actions. These actions involve setup and delivery of new
contracts and modifications to existing contracts.
At the installation, the more-significant contracts the MICC ICO has
provided services for include minor construction (alteration, repair and
renovation work) and base operations contracts.
What do they have planned?
The MICC ICO-Fort McCoy recently moved into a new facility, building
1108, and added three new positions. No additional growth is expected
within its structure.
Why are they important?
The MICC ICO-Fort McCoy is involved in almost every purchase that occurs
at Fort McCoy. The organization helps customers purchase goods and
services through contracts that Soldiers need for their training. These
purchases can consist of contracts for renovating facilities that
Soldiers use, hotels to board Soldiers, food services for dining
facilities and snow removal throughout the installation. The ICO also
has oversight of the Government Purchase Card program.
The MICC ICO-Fort McCoy is available at 608-388-3818. More information
also is available through the Fort McCoy Corporate Network in the
tenants section. Information about the ACC and MICC is available at
