(Editor’s note: This is the fourth Fort McCoy “SPOTLIGHT,” a series about tenant activities at Fort McCoy and their missions.)

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 construction.

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.
