Session Abstract: 

In 2011, President Obama issued an executive order for "Streamlining Service Delivery and Improving Customer Service" making better customer service a priority for every federal government agency.  This round table discussion will examine how the Center for Scientific Review (CSR) at the National Institutes of Health is transitioning from conducting ad hoc operational assessments of the peer review process to developing a program of customer satisfacrtion research with various stakeholders using qualitative and quantitative evaluation methods. CSRs' mission is to ensure that biomedical grant applications are evaluated using a process that is competent, thorough, timely, and free of bias. This Discussion Group will examine a model for conducting a process evaluation to determine areas of success and potential improvements in the quality and  cost of a federal government process. An example will show how surveys of customers can obtain immediate and cost-effective feedback for service improvements in federal government agencies.
