Purpose(s):

To provide support of world-wide system of commissaries selling groceries and household goods to military service members, their families and other authorized recipients. The system will scan products barcodes, determine the product price, calculate the total amount owed by the customer, and accept payment by cash, check, and credit or debit card. In addition, the system has an internet shopping application, Virtual Commissary (VC) that provides the capability to expand the benefits to authorized patrons who do not have access to a commissary. It has the capability to take orders and payments from authorized customers and then forward the order to the appropriate location to be filled.

Routine uses of records maintained in the system, including categories of users and the purposes of such uses:

In addition to those disclosures generally permitted under 5 U.S.C. 552a(b) of the Privacy Act, these records or information contained therein may specifically be disclosed outside the DoD as a routine use pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 552a(b)(3) as follows:

To Virtual Commissary Suppliers/Companies that will take the information to fulfill customers' orders for merchandise (grocery and household items) purchased through the Virtual Commissary.
