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, Jimmie LeRoy shares his story.
My name is Jimmie LeRoy, and this is “My DCMA.”
I am a management analyst in the Contracts Directorate at DCMA headquarters.
My job duties include providing manpower and personnel management support by reading, interpreting, and applying civilian personnel rules, regulations, directives, policies and procedures issued by DCMA, Department of Defense, Office of Personnel Management, and other regulatory bodies. My other duties include serving as the Combined Federal Campaign representative, social committee member and the subject matter expert for the Fourth Estate Personnel Accountability and Assessment Systems. In addition, I serve as an Internal Web Access Management administrator, training coordinator and an emergency response team member.
I have been a part of the DCMA team for nine years. I started working with the agency as I was retiring from the Army Reserve. I like working here because I always seem to learn something new. Some of the great things about working at my location include the people that I get a chance to meet and interact with on a daily basis.
DCMA has been through quite a few changes over the years. I started here after the headquarters relocated from northern Virginia to the Rivers Bend location. After that, we had quite a few individuals move from the Rivers Bend location to Fort Lee. We have also been through several reiterations of structural changes, which happened throughout the entire agency.
DCMA is important to America’s warfighters because we provide the services that supply products to support and protect our troops. As we celebrate our 20th anniversary, I’m excited to see future changes and where DCMA is 20 years from now. One thing about 2020 is that we have no control over COVID-19, but it has opened our eyes to how we work. My goal would be for us to embrace 2020 and continue to work through it as we all are doing.
My future career goals include passing on the knowledge that I have learned throughout my career to other employees until I retire in several years. Something unique about me is that thankfully there is only one of me — I do not think this agency could handle two of me. I don’t consider myself unique, but I try to make time for others and help them. My favorite hobbies include volunteering, cooking and working in the yard.
