The Defense Equal Opportunity Climate Survey (DEOCS) consists of a series of questions about work experience, leadership, behaviors, personal experiences and tailored questions selected by your Senior Leaders. After May 30, a compiled final report will be given to Commanders. Your feedback allows Senior Leadership to make the necessary changes to improve our unit. Please check your .mil email during this time period to access your survey. Works best with Google Chrome.

Testing will resume July 1, 2021 to ensure the health and safety of Airmen during the COVID-19 pandemic and to ensure social distancing practices remained in place. When assessments resume, the three-component fitness test (1.5 mile run, 1 minute of pushups and sit-ups) will be reset with scores calculated on a new three component scoring table. In addition, work is underway to separate scoring into five-year age groups as opposed to the previous ten – for example, age groups will start at <25, 25-29 years old, 30-34, years old, etc. As testing resumes, scores earned on the three-component fitness test will be redistributed. Final decisions on percentage component breakdowns will become available in June.
