Federal Employee Viewpoint Survey

The Federal Employee Viewpoint Survey (FEVS) is your opportunity to confidentially voice your opinion about your work experience, organization and leaders.

NIH and Senior Leaders in each Institute and Center take feedback seriously. FEVS is used to create positive changes throughout the organization. Your feedback also enables managers to find ways to improve your experience in the workplace.

The 2023 FEVS is now closed.

Who is eligible to take the 2023 FEVS?

Full- and part-time permanent, non-seasonal employees, on-boarded on or before November 30, 2022, will receive an email invitation from the U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM) containing a unique link to participate in the survey. Contractors are not eligible for FEVS participation.

If you are an eligible federal employee, please look for an email from OPM with the following heading:

  • Source email address: Federal Employee Viewpoint Survey-HE
  • Subject line: [EXTERNAL] 2023 OPM Federal Employee Viewpoint Survey


The Office of Personnel Management (OPM) administers the survey and does not provide raw data to any participating Federal agencies. Therefore, NIH does not have access to any individuals’ raw data. To learn more, check out the confidentiality video and infographic.
