Customer Satisfaction Index

We measure consumer and business satisfaction on an annual basis.


The private sector is driving modernisation of services using new and emerging technologies. Customers of any service provider expect continuous improvement and government is no exception.

Customers interact with government services daily. Interactions include driving on roads, catching the train, visiting a museum, or sending children to school. 

It is important that government services are accessible to all and easy to use.

One of the Premier’s Priorities is to improve customer satisfaction with key government services every year. 

What are we doing

NSW Government agencies are listening to their customers and are working to put customer feedback into action by:

  • providing customers with a simple online tool, Feedback Assist, to give feedback directly to government
  • simplifying processes, improving access to information, and enhancing staff capability
  • sharing best-practice between agencies to make customer satisfaction central to service delivery.

The NSW Government is prepared to meet and exceed customer service expectations.
