Reporting Notes

  • CX Feedback Data: HISPs are currently in the process of aligning their customer feedback collections to seven government-wide CX measures. These measures align to specifically worded questions that agencies may make minimal changes to (to ensure relevancy for their context) and be scored on a scale of 1 to 5, with 5 indicating strong agreement with a measure statement. Agencies that use a 10 point scale provide a calculation for converting results to a five point scale. Many are collecting customer feedback under clearances that did not include a provision to share this data publicly. HISPs without the current capacity to collect and share data using the government-wide measures must identify a target date for reporting of these metrics not to exceed FY 2021, Quarter 1.
  • Operational Data: HISPs were provided the opportunity to submit operational data in their quarterly reporting to OMB that provides context regarding their customers' experiences with their service.
