Commander's Responsibilities

All Unit Commander's, will ensure that Equal Opportunity complaints are properly received by the chain of command, promptly investigated in a fair impartial manner and appropriately resolved without fear of reprisal or retaliation.

Unit Commander's will publish a policy statement on equal opportunity (which includes sexual harassment) to support their Equal Opportunity Program. This statement should include complaint procedures and identify the possible consequences of engaging in discrimination or sexual harassment. The policy statement should be prominently posted on all unit bulletin boards and discussed by Commander's during leadership training.

Battalion Commander's and above will complete the annual Equal Opportunity Data Summary Report (DSR), as required by MCO P5354.1D w/ch1. The DSR will cover the period of 1 October through 30 September and will reach the CMC (MPE) by 15 November. The information required and the format for this report is contained in Appendix C.

Unit Commander's shall assess their command equal opportunity climate within 90 days upon assumption of command. The DEOCS (DEOMI Equal Opportunity Climate Survey) measures perceptions and attitudes of command members in regard to discrimination and sexual harassment, as well as organizational effectiveness. The DEOCS is offered on-line or in the traditional paper survey format.
