DEOCS extension empowers team members

By Thomas Perry DCMA Public Affairs

Defense Contract Management Agency leadership extended the 2023 Defense Organizational Climate Survey to May 12.

“DEOCS offers team members a chance to share their voice and shape the agency’s future,” said Linda Galimore, DCMA’s Equal Employment Opportunity director. “Their feedback and viewpoints represent valuable tools in our continued effort to make DCMA a preferred employment destination within the federal government.”

The survey’s participation rate stands at 60%. The extension seeks to meet and exceed the agency’s 70% goal.

Results from the last survey drove significant changes within DCMA. Successful implementation and enhancement of 365’s Virtual Center of Excellence Communication Page, the Leadership Development Program, inclusive workplace policy developments, and the Training Resource Library all began as suggestions from survey participants.

“Positive change starts with our team members,” said Galimore. “Their voice matters. Their opinion matters. Their expertise matters. Feedback is vital to understand the agency’s strengths and weaknesses. I hope everyone participates. Really, that is my goal — 100%. It is that important.”

As his time as DCMA’s director comes to an end, Army Lt. Gen. David Bassett said right now is the best time for team members across the agency to provide feedback as the agency’s next leader is sure to analyze DEOCS results at the first opportunity.

“If you don’t tell us what’s wrong, we can’t fix it,” said Bassett.

Employees can complete the anonymous survey during the workday on any computer or mobile device at
