Defense Contract Management Agency (DCMA) is a Department of Defense (DoD)
agency that works directly with Defense Suppliers / Vendors after awards to help ensure that
the government supplies and services on the awarded contract are delivered on time,
at projected cost, and meet all delivery and technical data requirements.
DCMA professional employees serve as "information brokers" and in-plant
representatives for military, Federal, and allied government buying agencies
-- both during the initial stages of the contract acquisition cycle and
throughout the life of the resulting contracts.
Before government contract award
DCMA provides advice and services to help
construct effective solicitations, identify potential risks, select the most
capable contractors, and write contracts that meet the needs of our
customers in DoD, Federal and allied government agencies.
After government contract is awarded
DCMA monitors contractors' performance and
management systems to ensure that cost, product performance, and delivery
schedules are in compliance with the terms and conditions of the contracts.

DCMA and the Small Business Program
the Small Business Program Division�s objective is to evaluate and
analyze how well prime contractors ensure small businesses receive a
fair proportion of and a maximum practicable opportunity to participate
in prime contractors' subcontracts. Our strategy to achieve this
objective is to actively assist customers in developing aggressive but
reasonable subcontracting plans for their contractors and review
contractor compliance with subcontracting plans. By doing this, the
Agency helps foster business innovation and new technology, supports the
war fighter, strengthens and sustains the military and economic
industrial base and promotes private enterprise.
