Susan Feldman, Web Analytics Program Manager, National Cancer Institute, will speak on NIH’s Enterprise Approach to Measuring Customer Satisfaction on the Web.
The ACSI survey methodology, developed at the University of Michigan, links customer expectations and perceived quality to customer satisfaction, which in turn links to key outcomes. ACSI scores are reported on a scale of 0-100. ACSI scores are based on data from voluntary surveys.
While key outcomes vary depending on the mission of the program or website, improved performance leads to increased customer satisfaction, which in turn increases the public’s trust in government.Federal Consulting Group’s Role
The Federal Consulting Group is the executive agent in the federal government for the ACSI. FCG has a generic survey clearance from OMB for using ACSI surveys to assess the services, information, call centers, and websites of federal agencies. FCG expedites the survey review and clearance.
FCG is hosting the meeting for performance and customer service managers and analysts involved with agency programs and websites in all departments. The program is also open to other federal employees—especially those who are interested in ACSI—and government contractors.Security
