To successfully accomplish the City’s strategic goals, an Information Technology (IT) customer service survey was conducted in FY 2009-10 in the areas of the IT team’s responsiveness, technical knowledge, courtesy, respect, timeliness, and overall satisfaction. The results indicated that compared to the benchmarking communities in ICMA—Center for Performance Measurement, the City of Roseville's overall IT satisfaction rates are inline with the average.

The main purpose of the survey was to solicit information from City of Roseville employees to improve services we provide to our customers. A secondary purpose was to educate our customers on the function of the various divisions within the IT organization.
