The MARC Group
The MARC Group is dedicated to decreasing operating costs on military installations through the privatization process. Our model will alleviate the need to close commissaries while bringing greater value and savings to our men and women in the United States Armed Forces. The MARC Group has developed and implemented concepts and strategies through the Public Private Process that will reduce costs and save jobs. The MARC Group is a conduit between the private sector and the military.
We are in the process of privatizing military installations by bringing the top national and regional brands of grocery and retail stores to the men and women who serve in the United States Armed Forces. We aim to improve sales, productivity, organization, military culture and employee relations while cutting government spending through privatization of commissaries and exchanges.
The Defense Commissary Agency (DeCA) operates commissaries (grocery stores) that offer food and other necessities at a discount to members of the military, their families, and retirees. Currently, existing commissaries are facing financial hardships and government regulations to reduce spending. Our model will alleviate the need to close commissaries and allow the continuance of offering a service to those who risk their lives for our freedom.
Post Exchanges (PX) are retail stores on military bases. These stores are dependent on commissary operations. We believe privatizing both the commissaries and the post exchanges is the only way to keep these benefits obtainable and affordable for military personnel. This concept is consistent with recommendations from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) and the Government Accounting Office (GAO).
