RMKS/1. This NAVADMIN provides direction to Commanders, Commanding Officers
and the chain of command to encourage maximum participation in the
Exceptional Family Member Program (EFMP) survey from Sailors with family
members with special needs. This survey will better inform and equip Navy
leadership to provide the best quality of life possible for our Navy family.
2. Military families with special medical or educational needs face a unique
set of challenges. A family with special needs must often find specialized
medical care providers and schools that can provide appropriate special
education services. EFMP is designed to allow Sailors to continue to serve
by assisting them in providing access to care and support for family members
with special needs, and the Navy is committed to ensuring these families are
provided the maximum support possible in obtaining specialized education and
3. The EFMP survey will assess the needs of Sailors and their families, and
will provide Navy leadership a better understanding of the overall quality of
service received from EFMP. Areas of specific interest include feedback on
experiences and concerns encompassing family support services, referrals to
military and community resources, medical services access and quality,
special education services, and assignment coordination.
4. The link to the survey, https://surveys.max.gov/index.php/724986?lang=en,
will be disseminated to families via Navy Family Accountability and
Assessment System (NFAAS), the Ombudsman Registry and social media on or

June 2020. The survey will be imbedded in Max.gov; participants will not
need to log in or create an account.
5. Command triads, department heads, division officers and leading Chief
Petty Officers should communicate the value of this survey and emphasize the
