DCMA launches new website

By DCMA Public Affairs

FORT LEE, Va., Sept. 29, 2016 — The Defense Contract Management Agency has a new public face. Effective Sept. 29, the agency’s web address,, will take visitors to a fresh site.

“It won’t look entirely unfamiliar,” said Mark Woodbury, DCMA chief of public affairs, “in fact most of the interface was designed to match our former site. The big change for us is how we manage our content.”

The change was a months-long effort spearheaded by the agency’s Information Technology Directorate with input from public affairs. It brings a new content management system that allows for faster updating while also bringing the look and feel more in line with other Department of Defense sites.

“We worked with the Defense Media Activity and our IT on a site that combines the best of our former site with some of the things we’d seen on DoD and some of the service sites,” Woodbury said. “While much of the change is subtle to visitors, it’s a fundamental change in how our public affairs office provides content.”

The new structure will have no effect on DCMA 360, the agency’s online collaboration platform. Employees can still log in to 360 from the public homepage, and care was taken to retain the most commonly used homepage links.

“We wanted it to be fresh, simpler and more effective, but without being a distraction to our regular visitors” said Woodbury. “Our IT and web team knocked it out of the park.”
