Reimbursable Survey Services

We provide scientifically validated, standardized surveys, as well as customized surveys to assess a wide range of human capital management areas, including demonstration projects. Visit our Survey Services site at for more information.

The Office of Personnel Management (OPM) oversees, conducts, and supports various Governmentwide and agency surveys.  Results of these surveys inform Governmentwide human resources policy and agency-specific initiatives.  This page is provided as a resource to let you know about some of our activities and the services we offer in this area.

Federal employees should be aware we periodically administer surveys on behalf of OPM and other Federal agencies. These surveys are generally limited to specific audience groups or sample areas. Accordingly, we typically do not provide links to all of these specific surveys. You may contact your agency Human Resources office for additional information about the nature and legitimacy of a survey you may have received from OPM.
