The United States Army Installation Management Command Korea Region (IMCOM-K) was a military organization whose primary mission is to provide the United States Army in Korea the installation capabilities and services to support expeditionary operations in a time of persistent conflict, and to provide a quality of life for Soldiers and Families commensurate with their service. IMCOM-Korea was the Korean regional office of the Installation Management Command. IMCOM-K had its headquarters in Seoul, Republic of Korea on United States Army Garrison Yongsan. However, IMCOM Korea was deactivated and absorbed into IMCOM Pacific in 2011.[1]

History of the Installation Management Command[2]

The [8]

  1. The former Installation Management Agency (IMA)[9]
  2. The former Community and Family Support Center,[10] now called Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation Command (FMWRC),[11] which is a subordinate command of IMCOM.
  3. The former Army Environmental Center, now called the Army Environmental Command (AEC), which is a subordinate command of IMCOM.[12]

Before IMCOM, the Army's 184 installations[13] were managed by one of 15 Major Commands. Support services varied – some provided better services, some provided worse. In September 2001, Army Secretary Thomas E. White introduced the Transformation of Installation Management (TIM),[14] formerly known as Centralized Installation Management (CIM), pledging the Army would implement better business practices and realign installation management to create a more efficient and effective corporate management structure for Army installations worldwide. On 1 Oct. 2002, the Army formed IMA as a field operating agency of the Assistant Chief of Staff for Installation Management (ACSIM) as part of an ongoing effort to realign installations.[15]

IMCOM, is currently headquartered in Arlington, VA,[16] but is relocating to Fort Sam Houston at San Antonio, TX. IMCOM oversees all facets of installation management such as construction; barracks and Family housing; family care; food management; environmental programs; well-being; Soldier and Family morale, welfare and recreation programs; logistics; public works; and installation funding.
