House Subcommittee Expresses Concerns Over FEVS Delays
In a letter sent last week, Rep. Gerry Connolly (D-VA) questioned the multiple delays to the annual Federal Employee Viewpoint Survey (FEVS).
“The subcommittee is concerned about the apparent mishandling of the 2020 Federal Employee Viewpoint Survey by the Office of Personnel Management,” said Connolly, chairman of the House Oversight and Reform Subcommittee on Government Operations, in a letter to the agency’s acting director. “For a second time this year, OPM has abruptly postponed the administration of the FEVS, providing conflicting and contradictory reasoning for the need to do so.”
OPM postponed the employee viewpoint survey at the end of March to allow agencies to focus on their missions and the government’s response to the coronavirus pandemic. The survey was delayed again July 13 and is currently set to be administered Sept. 14.
