Within DM, the major organization structure is into Lead Institutions/Teams. These are:
- Science Data Archive and Data Access Services (SLAC)

The work of each team is coordinated by a Technical Manager (“T/CAM”) who is responsible to the DM Project Manager.
There are five primary coordinating bodies to ensure the management, technical, and quality integrity of the DM Subsystem.
- DM Leadership Team (DMLT)
- DM System Science Team (DM-SST)
- DM Systems Engineering Team (DM-SET)
- DM Change Control Board (DM-CCB; formerly the Technical Control Team)
