Navy circulating housing satisfaction survey

As a result of concerns about living conditions in privatized military housing, Chief of Naval Operations Adm. John Richardson is mandating that a survey be circulated to all sailors living in privatized housing.

The aim of the survey, which is being conducted through April 30, is to determine the overall satisfaction of residents living in privatized housing, including health and safety concerns.

Sailors will also be able to note their likes and dislikes with privatized housing, concerns they may have regarding their homes, community and services provided by the privatized housing management companies, as well as overall satisfaction. The Navy is encouraging participating in the survey, which is not mandatory.

Sailors living in privatized housing will receive a letter that will provide information on how to access the survey from CEL & Associates Inc., the third party group the Navy selected to conduct and manage the survey. Typically such surveys are conducted by the companies managing the housing complexes.

The Navy has also conducted town hall meetings and walk-throughs of homes at the request of residents. The Navy says it is working with housing partners to ensure maintenance and repairs are being conducted and other issues are addressed with landlords.
