WASHINGTON (NNS) -- Sailors or their family members living in Private Partner Venture (PPV) housing have through April 30 to complete a special survey that allows them to share their overall experience with their current living conditions.
The PPV survey is an opportunity for Sailors to note their likes and dislikes with privatized family housing and any health or safety concerns they may have with their homes, community or services provided by privatized housing management companies.
The survey, which was launched on April 2, is being conducted by CEL & Associates, an independent third party. It takes about 10 minutes to complete. Those who participate will remain anonymous unless they choose to identify themselves.
This “out-of-cycle” PPV survey was directed by the Navy and is different than past annual surveys conducted on behalf of the companies. In the past, those companies would provide the Navy with a final report on the results of their surveys, but not all of the data. The Navy will be provided all the data from this survey.
Taking the the survey is important to Navy leaders because information provided may help in the effort to address deficiencies that have come to light recently in some privatized housing.
Family members of Sailors living in privatized housing are allowed to take the survey, but only one survey is allowed per household.
All privatized housing residents, both families and unaccompanied Sailors, should have received their survey form via email by now from CEL & Associates. If they have not, they should contact CEL and provide their name and housing address so that CEL can ensure that they get the survey on time. The email address is: NavyPPVHousingSurvey@celassociates.com
Surveys are also underway for government leased or owned family or unaccompanied housing, but those residents have more time to complete those surveys.
A survey for Sailors living in government unaccompanied housing also began April 2 and runs through June 20. A survey for Sailors and families living in government-owned or government-leased housing was launched on March 19, and runs through June 6.
