Results from the 2021 Navy Public-Private Venture (PPV) housing Tenant Satisfaction Survey (TSS) show an overall score of 76.2 for family housing, representing a slight 0.8 point decline from the previous survey. Detailed survey results by the installation are being used to guide where the Navy and our PPV partners can continue to make improvements and take corrective actions.
“Providing quality, affordable housing for Sailors and their families is a priority for the Navy,” said Mr. Cannon, director of Fleet and Family Readiness at Commander, Navy Installations Command (CNIC). “Thank you to all the Sailors and tenants who took part in the survey. The survey responses will be invaluable in improving our housing services to best serve you as you serve the nation.”
About the Survey
The annual TSS is funded by the Department of the Navy (DON) and distributed to residents of privatized family and unaccompanied housing through a third-party survey company. The survey provides each household with a voluntary and confidential opportunity to share open and honest feedback on their housing experience.
This year’s privatized housing survey was conducted between October and December of 2021 with residents at 46 installations consisting of 244 family housing neighborhoods, as well as the two installations that have PPV unaccompanied housing.
The TSS, conducted by CEL & Associates, focused on three satisfaction indexes – overall satisfaction, property satisfaction and service satisfaction. These indices provide CNIC with a snapshot of the PPV residents’ opinions regarding the condition of the homes and neighborhoods, and the quality of the services provided. Of the 34,295 surveys distributed to PPV residents, 25.6 percent responded (2.9 percent decline from FY21) generating the following average scores, based on a 100-point scale:
• Overall Satisfaction Index: 76.2 (0.8 point decline from FY21)
• Property Index: 72.8 (1.2 point decline from FY21)
• Service Index: 78.2 (0.6 point decline from FY21)
Across the 45 Installations surveyed, 88.9% (40) rated in the Outstanding, Very Good, Good, or Average ranges (100.0 thru 70.0) in the Overall Score, 8.9% (4) rated Below Average (69.9 thru 65.0), and 2.2% (1) rated Poor or Very Poor (64.9 thru 55).

While PPV partners worked diligently to provide continued service to residents throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, the challenges presented appear to have contributed to the decrease in overall satisfaction scores at 27 of the 45 installations surveyed.
While the majority of neighborhoods scored above average, PPV neighborhoods that received an overall score less than 75 are required to develop a targeted action plan to address issues identified by residents. These action plans are submitted to CNIC and Naval Facilities Engineering Systems Command (NAVFAC) to review and track progress.
In addition to the TSS, the Navy continues to focus on improving its oversight of PPV housing and enhancing the living experience for service members and their families. The Navy is implementing the Department of Defense-issued Military Housing Privatization Initiative (MHPI) Tenant Bill of Rights (TBOR,) which addresses 15 of the 18 rights in the FY 2020 NDAA. The three remaining rights are being actively negotiated and are expected to be implemented as part of the new universal lease that is being developed.
Recent Efforts, Ongoing Improvements
“I thank everyone who took time from their busy holiday and PSC schedule to participate in this year’s PPV Family and Unaccompanied Housing survey,” said Jon Skelton, CNIC Housing Operations and Policy branch manager. “The TSS is a vital part of how we assess the residential portion of our Housing program. We use this information as one way to hear the voice of the residents telling us their priorities for and opinions of their housing area. I can’t thank the participants enough and encourage everyone to participate.”
