A number of different methods have been developed and evaluated for creating a Food Cost Index FCI. Pending passage of a Uniform Ration Law URL , it is recommended that a food subgroup type FCI be formulated consistent with the provisions of the existing Navy Ration Law NRL and with actual military food utilization patterns. After the adoption of a new URL, an improved FCI should be formulated using a least squares technique applied to the latest military food utilization data. A reference menu approach for determining the Basic Daily Food Allowance BDFA should also be further developed and evaluated.
