My DCMA: Army Maj. Matthew Capps, program integrator

By Tonya Johnson DCMA Public Affairs

My DCMA showcases the Defense Contract Management Agency’s experienced and diverse workforce and highlights what national defense team service means to them. Today, Army Maj. Matthew Capps shares his story.

My name is Maj. Matthew Capps, and this is “My DCMA.”

I am a program integrator at DCMA BAE Systems in York, Pennsylvania. My primary job duties include serving as the eyes and ears for the program management office, developing collaborations with industry partners and stakeholders to ensure synergy and holistic conceptualization with production issues, contract performance, and predicting future performance in all critical phases of the program life cycle. 

I have been a part of the DCMA team since July 2021. One great thing about working at my location are the people. The magnitude of experience in DCMA’s workplace is fundamentally a contributing force in creating value toward any endeavors or problem sets.

I like working at DCMA because of the challenging dynamics of creating collaborative and effective relationships between customers, stakeholders and industry partners. 

The agency’s new vison statement reflects our importance within the nation’s warfighter support mission: “We are a team of trusted professionals delivering value to our warfighters throughout the acquisition lifecycle.”

Since the agency celebrated its 22nd anniversary this year, I am excited for the DCMA team as we provide value-based contributions by creating positive relationships with external stakeholders and customers, and internally, with fellow team members. Twenty years ago, I returned from my last enlisted Marine Corps assignment in Okinawa, Japan, and transitioned into another chapter of my life by becoming a college student.

At York, our current team goal is to continue a successful transition of the M88A2 Recovery Vehicle Hercules assembly production line to BAE’s Vehicle Upgrade Overhaul Center in Anniston, Alabama. My future career goals include enhancing my abilities and adding value to DCMA’s warfighter-support mission. 

My favorite hobbies include mountain biking, puzzles, hiking and spending time with my family. Something unique about me is I volunteer as an assistant scout master and assistant den leader for a local Boy Scouts of America chapter. It is important to help lead and develop youth through outreach programs so they can become future leaders of tomorrow within the community.
