Division of Facilities Management and Construction (DFMC)

Division of Facilities Management and Construction reports to the Director of the Office of Facilities, Property and Safety Management.

The Division of Facilities Management and Construction is a growing, dynamic organization which is in the midst of improving upon the ways in which the Indian Affairs (IA) meets its stewardship responsibilities to plan, design, build, operate, and maintain Bureau-funded Indian Education, Law Enforcement, and Administration facilities.

The headquarters Division is located in Albuquerque, N.M. Professional staffs consist of engineers, architects, facility managers, and support personnel who provide expertise in all facets of the construction and facility fields. Our staffs recognize that facilities represent capital investments by the Bureau in the health and safety of our students and staff. We also realize that properly maintained facilities are critical to the effective performance of the Bureau's missions and to the provision of government services to Indian tribes and individuals.

The Facilities Management and Construction Center was established under Congressional mandate in 1977; at that time it was placed under the direction of the Department's Division of Construction Management (OCM) and then renamed the Office of Facilities Management and Construction (OFMC) in 1997. In 2012 OFMC transferred the Facilities Program operational and execution functions back to BIA, and the organization was renamed the Division of Facilities Management and Construction (DFMC).
