Commuter Survey Request

Survey Information

GSA offers the Scope 3 Commuter Survey as a turn-key solution to help any federal agency capture its Scope 3 Employee Commute information and easily report its emissions to DOE FEMP. GSA has deployed this survey for agencies ranging from the very small (less than 50 employees) to the very large (greater than 500,000 employees). In FY2010, more than 18,000 federal employees completed the commuter survey with 98% of them indicating they were "Very Satisfied" or "Satisfied" with their survey experience

GSA and the Department of Transportation's Volpe Center collaboratively developed the Scope 3 Commuter Survey which is deployed through the GSA Carbon Footprint Tool. The survey questions and deployment method-sending customized email invitations to individual survey participants with a unique, anonymous link-have been approved by CEQ and DOE FEMP. GSA is offering this service for free to only federal agencies. Agencies may deploy a commuter survey without committing to the use of any other portion of the Tool.

When you deploy the Scope 3 Commuter Survey through the GSA Carbon Footprint Tool, here is what you can expect:

  • Before the Deployment: GSA will guide your agency through the pre-deployment checklist (see "Pre-deployment Checklist" under "Reference Materials"). Once GSA receives the requisite materials, we can provide you with samples of the survey to circulate internally for review.
  • During the Deployment: GSA will handle the deployment of survey invitation and reminder emails, will provide technical assistance to survey users, and will provide automatic calculation of survey results. You can track the survey response rate in real-time.
  • After the Deployment: Upon completion of the survey, you will be able to access a report of your GHG emissions results, key commuter metrics, and an Excel-based file of anonymous responses for all survey questions for further analysis.
