FEVS Delayed Due to Coronavirus

The 2020 Federal Employee Viewpoint Survey will be delayed due to the coronavirus.

The Office of Personnel Management announced that the 2020 Federal Employee Viewpoint Survey will be delayed due to the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic.

OPM issued the following memo for heads of executive departments and agencies:

The 2020 Federal Employee Viewpoint Survey (FEVS) is being postponed to support your critical agency missions as well as maximize employee participation in the survey. The Government-wide FEVS administration is now tentatively scheduled to begin Monday, July 13, with a six-week fielding period. Additional details regarding the 2020 FEVS (i.e., launch schedules, reporting timelines, etc.) will be provided to agency FEVS POCs as soon as finalized.

If you have any questions about the upcoming survey, please contact Dr. Kim Wells, Survey Manager, at Kimberly.Wells@opm.gov.

Last year, the 2019 FEVS was issued beginning the week of May 13. Presumably, this year’s survey would have been issued about the same time.
