Abstract : The Defense Commissary Agency (DeCA) consolidated the Services' commissary support under the Department of Defense (DoD) beginning October 1, 1991. The DeCA commissary system has over 18,000 personnel working in more than 300 commissaries worldwide, generating approximately $5.0 billion in annual sales. The savings realized by commissary patrons amount to more than twice the appropriated cost of running the system. The resulting reduction in costs is the goal Congress had in mind in directing consolidation.
