OHA survey on German utility costs runs through the month
By STARS AND STRIPES Published: March 11, 2014
An annual survey used by military officials to gauge utility expenses in Germany can be filled out by servicemembers until March 31, according to U.S. Army Europe.
The annual Overseas Housing Allowance expenses survey is intended for all military personnel regardless of service affiliation who reside off post in privately leased or rental housing.
The survey is available on the USAREUR homepage under the “Hot Topic” section or here: https://www.defensetravel.dod.mil/site/oha-util-mar.cfm
Every year the Defense Travel Management Office conducts a poll to identify how much service members spent during the previous year for utilities. The data are used to determine utility allowances, which are part of the Overseas Housing Allowance. Collection of rental data is not part of the survey.
Spouses are authorized to take the survey if the sponsor is deployed or unavailable.
