Federal Employee Viewpoint Survey

Logo for federal employee viewpoint survey

Each year, the Office of Personnel Management conducts the Federal Employee Viewpoint Survey (FEVS). The FEVS measures employees' perceptions of whether, and to what extent, conditions characteristic of successful organizations are present in the agency. The FEVS serves as a tool for employees to share their perceptions in many critical areas including their work experiences, their agency, and leadership.

Survey results are analyzed at all levels to help inform decision-making and to allow managers to see where improvements within their work units are necessary. When indicated, managers form action plans with teams of employees to address FEVS results. 

The 2020 FEVs focused on federal agencies’ response to the COVID-19 pandemic with half the questions related to COVID and half the traditional questions about work unit, work experience, agency, supervisor, leadership, and overall satisfaction. In the 2020 FEVS, DCAA had a 69% response rate and positive results with 35 questions identified as strengths and 0 identified as challenges.
