Army Building Up Readiness via Installation Management Command Realignment

The U.S. Army will realign Installation Management Command as a subordinate command within Army Materiel Command by March 1, the Army News Service reported Monday.

"The Army is implementing aggressive reforms to free-up resources for readiness, modernization efforts and to improve overall efficiency," said Brig. Gen. Omar Jones, the service’s chief of public affairs.

Officials said IMCOM and its 50,000 workforce will continue operating at Fort Sam Houston in Texas and there no one will be eliminated from their position during the transition. The planned realignment intends to combine base operations and other related functions, and use the service’s expertise in sustainment and logistics. Army Materiel Command provides installation contracting assistance, management support and other services for ammunition plants, depots and other facilities.
