Who should complete the DEOCS?
Military and civilian employees of NDU. Students, contractors and employees of the regional centers are not part of the intended population.
I received the email with the survey link and passcode but have been assigned a passcode that doesn’t match my component. What should I do?
Please contact the survey administrator for the correct passcode at firstname.lastname@example.org

How long will it take to complete the survey?
The survey will take approximately 25 minutes to complete and must be done in one sitting. Your completion time will depend, in part, on how much time you spend on the open-ended questions.
Are my responses anonymous?
Yes, your responses are anonymous, unless you enter identifying information in answer to an open-ended question. The survey is conducted by the Defense Equal Opportunity Management Institute (DEOMI) and NDU will receive only reports that summarize the responses, not the individual responses themselves.
There will be several reports generated by DEOMI: an overall report based on all responses to the survey and group breakout reports for each component. There must be at least 16 responses in a group to generate a breakout report. Some results are also presented by subgroup based on demographic categories; there must be at least five (5) responses in a subgroup for this type of result to be included in a report.
Answers to the open-ended questions are included in the reports verbatim and are grouped only by question; that is, they do not include any identifying information based on other survey responses such as demographic categories. The overall report will include all open-ended responses and each breakout report will include the responses from that component.
