Client Satisfaction Survey

Currently waiting for a response from Department of Veterans' Affairs, they should respond promptly and normally no later than (details).

Dear Department of Veterans' Affairs,

I previously requested for documents on your client satisfaction survey methodology which received a few vaguely relevant documents, heavily redacted, two years later (https://www.righttoknow.org.au/request/c...)

In follow-up to that FOI, which did contain a table showing the proposed age, gender, state/territory location, and recent contact or not with CCF distribution for that telephone only survey (page 2 of that released document), I apply for copy of the document/s that records the demographics of the sample data obtained by that survey (what the sample population demographics were, not what it was proposed to be).

If it is easier to access, the document may be from the most recently carried out client satisfaction survey report.

I also seek copy of any document that records why Veterans' Affairs persists in using only a telephone survey, which results in an over-representation of much older veterans and war widows, given people under 50 typically do not respond to CATI calls (which come from an unlisted number), especially since CATI is far more expensive than CASI.

Yours faithfully,

Verity Pane

Dear Ms Pane

 

Freedom of Information Request: LEX 47368

 

I refer to your request for access to documents held by the Department of
Veterans’ Affairs (Department) under the Freedom of Information Act 1982
(FOI Act). Your request was received by the Department on 6 January 2022
and was made in the following terms:

 

I previously requested for documents on your client satisfaction survey
methodology which received a few vaguely relevant documents, heavily
redacted, two years later
([2]https://www.righttoknow.org.au/request/c...)

 

In follow-up to that FOI, which did contain a table showing the proposed
age, gender, state/territory location, and recent contact or not with CCF
distribution for that telephone only survey (page 2 of that released
document), I apply for copy of the document/s that records the
demographics of the sample data obtained by that survey (what the sample
population demographics were, not what it was proposed to be).

 

If it is easier to access, the document may be from the most recently
carried out client satisfaction survey report.

          

I also seek copy of any document that records why Veterans' Affairs
persists in using only a telephone survey, which results in an
over-representation of much older veterans and war widows, given people
under 50 typically do not respond to CATI calls (which come from an
unlisted number), especially since CATI is far more expensive than CASI.

 

In accordance with section 15(5)(b) of the FOI Act, the due date for a
decision on your request is 7 February 2022.

Please note that information released under the FOI Act may later be
published online on our disclosure log at

whether details of your request will be published on the disclosure log or
not.
