COMPACT WITH TEXANS A Customer Compact is an agreement made with the customers of an institution to provide services that follow a predetermined set of guiding principles.

7 Texas Parks and Wildlife Department 5 FY CUSTOMER SERVICE REPORT TPWD provides products and services to a wide range of external customer groups and individual customers. A solid customer service orientation and on-going efforts to solicit feedback regarding preferences and satisfaction are vital to our ability to effectively meet the needs of these customers. Recent/ongoing examples of these survey and customer assessment efforts include: Department website TPWD routinely solicits and responds to public comment and inquiries through the agency website, and is increasingly using this medium to obtain web-based feedback on agency regulatory proposals Annual public scoping meetings conducted to obtain customer feedback regarding management direction on specific issues of interest Frequent meetings with advisory committees and boards to help guide programmatic decisions and development of proposed regulations and other recommendations Annual angler creel surveys conducted on water bodies throughout the state to determine angler impact on aquatic resources and overall angler satisfaction with management efforts Statewide angler surveys conducted every four years to determine general attitude and opinion regarding statewide management efforts, angler preferences, and specific resource management issues TPWD online customer satisfaction survey (general) Invasive Species Awareness Survey conducting a pre-awareness and post-awareness survey of registered boat owners in East Texas. For the purpose of this report, TPWD will focus on the TPWD online customer satisfaction survey. TPWD ONLINE CUSTOMER SATISFACTION SURVEY A website customer satisfaction survey of key TPWD constituents state park visitors, hunters, freshwater and saltwater anglers, boaters, jet skiers, birders and wildlife watchers was conducted in the fall of The survey measured the statutorily required customer service quality elements: Overall satisfaction with TPWD; Satisfaction with TPWD facilities; Satisfaction with TPWD staff; Satisfaction with TPWD communications; Satisfaction with the TPWD website; Satisfaction with TPWD complaint-handling processes; Satisfaction with TPWD service timeliness; Satisfaction with TPWD printed information. The survey also collected data on the customer s level of participation in several outdoor activities to define the customer groups.
8 6 A Report on Customer Service A. Information Gathering Methods The survey was conducted on the TPWD website from October 1, 2012 to January 1, The goal was to collect a minimum of 400 responses, with at least 100 in each of the key customer groups (state park visitors, hunters, freshwater anglers, saltwater anglers, boaters, wildlife viewers). The survey was posted on the TPWD website in the highly visible areas of the home page and the web pages for park visitors, hunters, anglers, boaters, and wildlife viewers. The survey was conducted as a convenience sample in which web visitors had the option to click on the survey button and complete the survey online. It is recognized that a convenience sample poses a risk of non-response bias; therefore, the results are presented as indicators of the satisfaction of the customer groups measured. A future study with a random sample would be necessary to completely measure the satisfaction levels of TPWD customers. However, the costs of performing such a study would be substantial. TIME FRAME The survey was made available on the TPWD website October 1, 2012 to January 1, METHODOLOGY Visitors to the TPWD website could click on the survey button to complete the survey. The survey data was automatically entered electronically into a database, and analysis of the data was completed by TPWD s Communications Division staff. LIMITATIONS The primary limitation of this research is that the survey was conducted as a convenience sample in which web visitors had the option to complete the survey while visiting the TPWD website. A convenience sample poses risks as it may not fully represent the population of TPWD customers and there was no way to follow up with respondents to determine whether respondents differed from non-respondents. Additionally, due to the use of the website to conduct the survey, TPWD customers who do not have Internet access could not take part in the survey. Though the use of the Internet is generally high among Americans, and Internet access is widely available through libraries and schools as well as in private homes and offices, it is possible that TPWD customers who do not use the Internet may vary from the web users who participated in the survey. Another limitation of this study is that the survey was conducted during a single period of the year (fall and winter 2012/2013) and does not cover the broadest possible range of customers who use the TPWD website. However, earlier online surveys were conducted in the fall and winter of 2004, the summer of 2005, the spring of 2009, and the winter of 2011 to capture visitor satisfaction across the other seasons. The results of these surveys were presented in previous Customer Service Reports. NUMBER OF CUSTOMERS SURVEYED, SAMPLING ERROR, CONFIDENCE LEVEL AND RESPONSE RATE A total of 453 customers completed the online satisfaction survey. Many of these customers fell into more than one customer group based on their participation in more than one outdoor recreation activity once or more per year; thus the groups are not mutually exclusive. The goal for overall sample size as well as sample within each group was exceeded. The final tally of customer group sample sizes is as follows:
9 Texas Parks and Wildlife Department 7 Customer Group Sample Size Sample 453 State Park Overnight Visitors 381 State Park Day Visitors 418 Hunters 238 Freshwater Anglers 374 Saltwater Anglers 287 Boaters/Jet Skiers 309 Wildlife Watchers/Birders 354 The response rate cannot be calculated for this survey due to the methodology. GROUPS EXCLUDED FROM THE DATA COLLECTION PROCESS This survey was intended to target outdoor recreation users using the TPWD website. Due to this reason, other user groups that use the website such as landowners and commercial fishermen were not included in the survey. B. Performance Measures Outcome Measures PERCENTAGE OF SURVEYED CUSTOMERS EXPRESSING OVERALL SATISFACTION WITH SERVICES RECEIVED TPWD receives high satisfaction ratings from its customers in this survey. Seventy-five percent of customers report being either very satisfied or satisfied overall with the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department. Thirteen percent of customers report being dissatisfied or very dissatisfied with the agency. For the overall satisfaction question and eight of the twelve questions used to assess satisfaction levels on the statutorily required customer service elements, at least 70% of customers report being very satisfied or satisfied with TPWD s performance. These include the following areas: cleanliness of facilities, staff knowledge, staff friendliness, usefulness and ease of finding information on the website and printed information. Forty-eight percent of customers are satisfied with the timeliness of TPWD s response to inquiries, 20% report being neither satisfied nor dissatisfied and 7% reported being dissatisfied. Regarding complaint handling measured by satisfaction with TPWD s responsiveness to customer complaints nearly three quarters of survey respondents said the topic was either not applicable (47%) or that they were neither satisfied nor dissatisfied (25%). Just 5% of the survey population said they were dissatisfied with TPWD s responsiveness.
