Deputy Commandant for Mission Support
Our organization is responsible for all facets of life-cycle management for Coast Guard assets, from acquisition through decommissioning. This includes ships, planes, buildings and information technology. People are the Coast Guard’s largest and most valuable asset, and the DCMS organization is responsible for the processes that grow and sustain them for their time in Coast Guard service as well as through retirement. The Coast Guard Deputy Commandant for Mission Support leads the 17,000 person DCMS organization, providing a single point of accountability to operational commanders.
To deliver sustained and adaptable readiness for Coast Guard missions. The four DCMS Assistant Commandants, CG-1 (Human Resources), CG-4 (Engineering and Logistics), CG-6 (C4IT) and CG-9 (Acquisitions), coordinate the planning, policy and budget for six Logistics and Service Centers in the field. The centers provide the technical authority and oversight for maintenance and support of all Coast Guard assets. Logistics and support services are centrally managed through the centers, but regionally executed through our bases, which are being stood up in key locations throughout the country. The Director of Operational Logistics (DOL) will ensure standardized support through oversight of the future bases and offer a 24x7 mission support watch to effectively facilitate support to the field during normal operations and contingencies across the entire Coast Guard enterprise.
The Force Readiness Command (FORCECOM), the Coast Guard Academy, and all Coast Guard training centers are also part of the DCMS organization. FORCECOM will drive a continual human performance cycle to impart the skills and knowledge required to achieve mission excellence through delivering clear doctrine, training and quality assessments.
Together, we are developing a unified logistics system based on sound business management and accountability for mission support that will improve the readiness, capabilities and responsiveness of our people and assets while ensuring the safety of all Coast Guardsmen operating on the front line.
