Purpose GSA’s OCS currently provides service to citizens through the Internet at USA.gov, GobiernoUSA.gov and a family of consumer Web sites, through the phone at the National Contact Center 1–800-FED-INFO (1–800–333– 4636), and through the distribution of print publications from the distribution center in Pueblo, CO. In addition, OCS communicates with the public through e-mail, an online blog at http:// www.govgab.gov and online personal assistance. Additional market research is needed on a continual basis to develop customer service strategies and determine the future directions for our multi-channel efforts at OCS and for those customer service activities in other government agencies. This is especially true in the current Web 2.0 environment where citizens, particularly in Generation X and Y, have different communication and collaboration styles and needs. Since citizens expect their government experience to be on par with those they have with the private sector, it is crucial to determine how best the government can serve citizens in a world with rapidly changing technologies. Surveys will include questions regarding communication channel preferences for how citizens contact government, service level expectations and interests in social media and Web 2.0 applications. OCS will share this information and collaborate with all government agencies that are working to improve citizen engagement and customer service. OCS will work with a market research vendor that has an established panel of Americans who have agreed to take surveys for various clients. Therefore, OCS will not be collecting or storing any personally identifiable information. The vendor will also provide support in: (a) The development of questions; (b) building, programming and disseminating the online surveys; and (c) analyzing the responses. OCS will work with the contractor to ensure that the citizens recruited and surveyed represent a statistically valid demographic cross section of the American public. B.
