Ms. Nancy D. Small was appointed the Director of AMC Small Business Office Aug 2007.

Ms. Small serves as the principal advisor to the Commanding General, Deputy Commanding General, staff heads, and subordinate activities, on all matters related to the overall small businesses program. In this capacity, she serves as the senior AMC advisor to the Department of Defense and Department of the Army (Director Small Business) on small business issues and provides oversight of AMC’s $13B program.

The Army actively does business with industry partners through the Army Materiel Command, or AMC, procuring one out of every six federal contract dollars. AMC executes two-thirds of the Army's contracting budget through its Army Contracting Command, or ACC. The largest percentages of contracting dollars go to weapon systems and knowledge-based services.

As one of AMC's nine major subordinate commands, ACC has about 6,000 contracting professionals across the world who conducted more than 170,000 contracting actions last fiscal year.
