Needs and Uses: The information collection requirement is necessary to assess the level of service the Defense Technical Information Center (DTIC) provides to its current customers. The surveys will provide information on the level of overall customer satisfaction, and on customer satisfaction with several attributes of service that impact the level of overall satisfaction.

These surveys will also provide statistical and demographic basis for the design of follow-on surveys. Future surveys will be used to assist monitoring of changes in the level of customer satisfaction over time.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Summary of Information Collection

The purpose of these surveys is to assess the level of service the Defense Technical Information Center (DTIC) provides to its current customers. The proposed collection of information will be conducted annually. Less frequent collection or no collection of information would result in the inability to effectively measure customer satisfaction and improve products and services based on feedback. The surveys will provide information on the level of overall customer satisfaction, and on customer satisfaction with several attributes of service which impact the level of overall satisfaction. The objectives of the survey are to help DTIC (1) gauge the level of satisfaction among both its general and Top 200 users, and (2) identify possible areas for improving our products and services. The surveys are designed to assist in evaluating the following knowledge objectives:

  • To improve customer retention;
  • To determine the perceived quality of products, service and customer care;
  • To indicate trends in products, services and customer care;
  • To benchmark our customer satisfaction results with other Federal government agencies.
