My DCMA: Omar Delgado, program analyst

By Tonya Johnson DCMA Public Affairs

My DCMA showcases the Defense Contract Management Agency’s experienced and diverse workforce and highlights what being a part of the national defense team means to them. Today, Omar Delgado shares his story.

My name is Omar Delgado, and this is “My DCMA.”

I am a program analyst with the Combat Support Center’s Force Management Team at DCMA headquarters.

My job duties include analyzing and maintaining the CSC deployment database and providing data to the Contingency Response Force. I also provide information to improve the efficiency of internal reporting on data analytics.

I have been a part of the DCMA team for 1.5 years. My tenure at DCMA is short, but I have noticed the rapid adaptability the agency has gone through to remain successful and deliver the resources needed to assist both our customers and agency employees. I am impressed by how quickly the agency has adapted to the changing environment this year.

DCMA is important to America’s warfighters because the agency provides resources that are critical to the military branches, including services and equipment. DCMA delivers resources to keep warfighters equipped and prepared.

As the agency celebrates its 20th anniversary this year, I hope that we will continue to evolve and remain relevant. I believe DCMA’s diversity of employees makes us ready to take on the next 20 years.

I like working at DCMA because I enjoy my job. I get to be a part of a group that provides invaluable support to the warfighter in contingency operations by assisting our deployed civilian workforce in a variety of ways, from travel to training. I value my team’s diverse expertise because everyone brings countless approaches to solutions, which enhances our collaboration and our overall success and dedication.

My team’s goal is always two fold — provide the personnel needed to the combatant commanders; and ensure our DCMA employees have a worry-free deployment. We have been able to adapt during COVID-19 and remain proactive with changes to travel, quarantine guidance, and downrange requirements. We want to make sure the combatant commanders and our DCMA workforce have the support and information they need to be successful.

Some of the great things about working at my location include the people, especially my team. I compare us to cogs in a wheel — we are all working together to provide combatant commanders the personnel they need for success. Also, Fort Lee is my last duty station when I retired from the Army. I feel connected to the community that has supported my transition, which is why I give my time and service to Fort Lee and the Greater Richmond area.

My future career goals are to go back to school and pursue an accounting analytics related degree. My favorite hobbies include running, hiking and mountain biking. I enjoy being out in nature because it provides relaxation and contentment. Something unique about me is that I ran an ultramarathon, which is 31.1 miles, before running a marathon. After I ran my first marathon, I ran a second one the next day.
