DeCA continues to meet or exceed its performance goals, including increased sales without increased non-inflation costs; superior stewardship of funds; independent customer satisfaction ranking second among the U.S. largest private sector supermarket chains; and grocery savings of at least 30 percent compared to civilian supermarkets.
