The information collected from our customers and stakeholders will help ensure that users have an effective, efficient, and satisfying experience with FMCSA’s programs. The solicitation of feedback will target areas such as: Timeliness, appropriateness, accuracy of information, courtesy, efficiency of service delivery, and resolution of issues with service delivery.
