Welcome to the U.S. Army Medical Materiel Agency (USAMMA) web site/page. We are headquartered at Fort Detrick, Maryland, with satellite medical maintenance operations and centrally managed prepositioned materiel sites located throughout the United States and overseas.
The USAMMA performs important materiel acquisition project management and sustainment in support of the strategic level missions and transformation goals of the Military Health System and the U.S. Army.
We support the Army’s medical treatment facilities (MTFs) and more heavily the medical field organizations (operational forces) across most functional areas: veterinary, preventive medicine, dental, hospitalization, area support (Roles 1 & 2), evacuation, medical laboratory, and combat stress control. Two key elements of USAMMA’s wartime support mission are the deployment of Medical Logistics Support Teams to issue centrally managed materiel in support of operational forces and a depot forward repair activity medical (FRA-M) providing forward deployed medical maintenance expertise during contingency operations. USAMMA also serves as the command case manager for Foreign Military Sales (FMS) and is the sole Army contact for the sale of complex, service-unique medical materiel.
Our various stakeholders, suppliers-partners, and customer base consists of Federal Departments/Agencies, the Department of Defense, Allied nations, and Industrial institutions. Our many products and services include the following:
Managing Medical Materiel Lifecycle Projects. USAMMA provides acquisition and related force management expertise as the materiel developer for commercial and non-developmental items, manager for integrated acquisition logistics, and logistician for medical materiel life cycle management in support of the operational force (TOE) and medical treatment facilities (TDA).
Equipping and Sustaining the Medical Force. USAMMA has myriad strategic roles that directly support the Army Campaign Plan (ACP) and the Army Force Generation (ARFORGEN). The programs include building medical sets, kits, and outfits (SKOs), fielding medical SKOs and equipment, providing medical maintenance and sustainment support to the Army around the globe, and integrating new business projects and processes with current operations.
Managing Medical Strategic Centralized Programs. In support of force projection, the Agency centrally manages several Army and OTSG readiness programs. These programs include the acquisition, storage, distribution and transfer of prepositioned stocks located ashore and afloat, as well as medical chemical defense packages and short shelf life pharmaceuticals and other materiel.
