The Agency's mission is to develop, acquire, provide, and sustain world class solutions and capabilities to enable medical readiness globally. Accordingly, the USAMMA's principal skills and technologies focus on the medical logistician's role in lifecycle management, sustaining and modernizing the medical force (Active, Guard, and Reserve), supporting exercises and contingency operations, and promoting medical logistics information and knowledge.

The FSD has principal responsibility for Army medical force management. Specifically, PAMD is responsible for planning and budgeting wholesale procurement, production, introduction, sustainment, and recovery of medical Sets Kits and Outfits (SKOs) and individual medical equipment items for the Army's medical force, as well as nonmedical units with medical requirements (Active, Reserve, National Guard Components, and Army Prepositioned Stocks). This includes the full range of Planning, Programming, Budgeting and Execution (PPBE), procurement of SKO components and equipment, management of the SKO build process, distribution/fielding of medical assemblages, operational support of the Army medical units, and follow-on logistics support for medical systems and equipment to ensure combat ready forces in peacetime and during times of conflict. These actions are in direct support of USAMMA's Core Competencies; Equip the Force and Sustain the Force, as well as Army Force Generation (ARFORGEN).
