Survey Operations

The Survey Operations and Information Control division provides direction, development, implementation and oversight of survey research for MHS. The department develops policies, strategic plans and operational guidance for survey research and interfaces with other key DoD activities to ensure appropriate approval and licensing of all MHS surveys. In addition, the operational team ensures that goals are met with respect to needs, uses and purposes of surveys and that survey efforts are cost effective, non-duplicative, non-burdensome, efficacious and protect individual privacy.

The primary functions of Survey Operations and Information Control include:

  • Provide timely and accurate information and data for program evaluation, performance management, case management and decision support for the MHS (MCSC 3.0, Population Health, etc)
  • Establish premiere, cost effective and integrated assessment programs
  • Assist in benchmarking the MHS to its civilian counterparts
  • Develop strategy for identifying, articulating and achieving information needs and requirements
  • Oversee survey duplication, burden, cost and quality in and (when feasible) outside the MHS
