    The International Trade Administration's U.S. Commercial Service is 
mandated by Congress to help U.S. businesses, particularly small and 
medium-sized companies, export their products and services to global 
markets. As part of its mission, the U.S. Commercial Service (CS) 
currently uses customer satisfaction surveys to collect feedback from 
U.S. business clients that pay for services performed by CS. These 
surveys ask the client to evaluate CS on its customer service 
provision. The results from the surveys are used to make improvements 
to the agency's business processes in order to provide better and more 
effective export assistance to U.S. companies. In addition to 
soliciting client feedback after a service is delivered, the CS would 
like to add a tagline with a link to a Comment Card at the bottom of 
all employees' e-mail messages to enable clients to submit feedback 
anytime they see fit. The actual tagline would encourage recipients of 
the e-mail to click the Comment Card link and provide feedback on 
service quality. Samples of taglines could be similar to:

provided to you;'' or

purpose of the attached card is to collect feedback from U.S.
