Data Collection Workshops
Each year, DTMO conducts four one-day BAH workshop sessions for Military Housing Office (MHO) points of contact (MHO staff and other data collectors). The training provides a working knowledge of the housing allowance, explains the data collection process, identifies and highlights the reporting requirements and the essential role that the housing offices play in the allowance setting process. The housing area coordinators are trained to conduct annual data collection and to submit accurate and complete data sets.
The primary, and secondary, point of contact for each Military Housing Area (MHA) should attend one training session each year. While it is especially important for new personnel to attend training, repeat attendance from year to year is encouraged.
Training is conducted throughout the United States in March and April. Training dates and locations are published on the data collection website (https://www.defensetravel.dod.mil/mho).
