Shortly after taking office, she instituted an organizational name change to acknowledge "Energy" specifically, and created the Office of the Assistant Secretary of the Army for Installations, Energy and Environment (ASA IE&E).

She is the primary advisor to the Secretary of the Army and Chief of Staff of the Army on all Army matters related to Installation policy, oversight, and coordination of energy security and management.

She is responsible for policy and oversight of sustainability and environmental initiatives; resource management, including design, military construction, operations, and maintenance; base realignment and closure (BRAC); privatization of Army family housing, lodging, real estate, and utilities; and the Army’s installations safety and occupational health programs.

Installations, Housing, and Partnerships:

  • The completion of a six-year implementation of the BRAC 2005 recommendations. With an investment of $18 billion, the Army's BRAC 2005 program is more than three times larger than all four previous BRAC rounds combined.
  • The publication of the Army's first Sustainable, Design, and Development policy based on industry standards to improve building performance to produce energy savings.
  • The implementation of the Privatization of Army Lodging program to allow the Army to recapitalize and provide long-term sustainment of lodging facilities. Beginning with 11 initial installations, the remaining 18 installations will transfer in April 2013.
  • The successful completion of the Homeowners Assistance Program. This program provided $1.6 billion in financial relief to over 9,600 beneficiaries.

Environmental, Safety, and Occupational Health:

  • The authorization of the first Department of the Army Policy regarding American Indians and Alaska Natives.
  • The chartering of the first Department of the Army Environmental Program Committee to address issues at the strategic and programmatic levels.

  • The creation of a transformational process for the assessment of the Quality of the Work Environment in Army industrial facilities.
  • The identification of more than $50 million in duplicative counter explosive hazards detection and neutralization technology research and development efforts throughout the Department of Defense.

Ms. Hammack regularly visits installations to discuss installation accomplishments and challenges and has been in theater numerous times to meet with Soldiers, review environmental management practices, discuss contingency basing strategies, and get feedback on energy efficient equipment being used.
