Heading South

The Army announced today it will move Army Contracting Command and Expeditionary Contracting Command from Ft. Belvoir, VA, to Redstone Arsenal, AL, resulting in the reassignment of 79 soldiers and 234 civilians to Redstone.

Both commands will be located alongside Army Materiel Command and Army Security Assistance Command, which are already moving to Redstone Arsenal as part of the base realignment and closure movements.

"The collocation of these organizations will serve to improve the integration of contracting services within the continental United States, overseas installations, and theater operations," the service's announcement states.

The move is expected to be complete in August 2011.
