Upcoming Caseworker Workshops for 2017

Navy OLA offers Caseworker Workshops for Congressional caseworkers looking to gain a greater understanding of Navy facilities, operations, and perspectives. These workshops are offered multiple times per year in fleet concentration areas and provide caseworkers the opportunity to tour ships, squadrons, and/or facilities; meet Sailors and leadership; and discuss various topics that impact constituent casework.

Navy OLA will host Caseworker Workshops in the following locations in 2017:​

For more information on these workshops and how to register, please email LT David Zivnuska at david.zivnuska@navy.mil.

Submitting Constituent Inquiries

Navy OLA receives over 4,500 Constituent inquiries a year. Navy OLA only processes and responds to inquiries from Members of Congress.

In order to ensure your inquiry is processed properly and expeditiously, the following is required:

You may submit inquiries by emailing us at navy_constituent@navy.mil.

** Please do not send original materials to OLA. OLA cannot guarantee the return of any documentation sent to our office. Maintain a copy of any materials sent in your office.

To ensure we can properly locate the individual for the inquiry, as much information should be provided in the cover letter, including: name, social security number or service number, current command and/or command related to the inquiry, and contact information. Please also include the contact information for an appropriate caseworker for possible follow up.

Normally, Congressional inquiries require a minimum of two weeks for a response. Due to research and other processing requirements, some inquiries may take longer. For more time sensitive issues, Navy caseworkers can be reached at 703-614-3710. If you have not heard a response after two weeks, contact the Navy caseworkers.

Navy's Office of Legislative Affairs is the primary coordinator for Congressional inquiries to the Navy that are not directly addressed to SECNAV. It is our top priority to respond to these inquiries promptly and accurately.

The following direct point of contact are provided if you need additional assistance with your Navy inquiry:

-- For general assistance, please call the general correspondence telephone number at (703) 614-3710.

-- For urgent matters, you may contact the Executive Administration Director at (703) 695-9359.
