operation of a program compared to a
set of explicit or implicit standards—as
a means of contributing to the
continuous improvement of the those
programs. The Agency will collect,
analyze, and interpret information
gathered through this generic clearance
to identify strengths and weaknesses of
current services and make
improvements in service delivery based
on that feedback. The solicitation of
feedback will target areas such as:
Timeliness, appropriateness, accuracy
of information, courtesy, efficiency of
service delivery, and resolution of
issues with service delivery. Responses
will be assessed to plan and inform
efforts to improve or maintain the
quality of service offered to the public.
If this information were not collected,
vital feedback from customers and
stakeholders on the Agency’s services
would be unavailable and the Agency
would not know if adjustments would
be warranted.
