Installation Management Command

IMCOM, a single organization headquartered in San Antonio with six regional offices worldwide, was implemented to reduce bureaucracy and apply a uniform business structure to manage U.S. Army installations.

IMCOM was launched to meet a number of objectives: implement a standardization process so that Soldiers and families can count on quality, consistent and uniform services at all installations; streamline how installations receive money and ensure installation funds are used for installation services (as opposed to combat training or other missions); relieve warfighters and mission commanders of installation-related tasks so that they can focus on combat training and tactical-related issues; and support mission-readiness and execution. Within the IMCOM business structure for installations, Fort Meade is aligned under the Installation Management Command Atlantic Region. To learn more about IMCOM, visit
