Mission Support (DCMS)
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.
