Army Communities
Of Excellence

ACOE is a Chief of Staff of the Army (CSA) program that emphasizes strategies to achieve a performance-driven management system, maximize efficiencies, innovation, sustainability, and continuous process improvement in installation management.

The program assesses all components and dimensions of Army installation management consistent with all statutory and regulatory requirements using the tenets of the Baldrige Performance Excellence Program as developed by the National Institutes of Science and Technology (NIST) and the standard measurements for installation management contained in the Army's Installation Status Report.

The annual ACOE competition measures and recognizes the best performing installations and communities in the Army.
