Cal-OAR Client Satisfaction Survey

The Client Satisfaction Survey (CSS) evaluates the California Work Opportunity and Responsibility to Kids (CalWORKs) program, specifically focusing on customer/client satisfaction during the first six-months of time on CalWORKs aid. There are three surveys within the six-month period which are tied to the following program milestones: Welfare to Work (WTW) Orientation, WTW Plan development, and the first Semi Annual Report (SAR-7).  

The CSS was developed to help County Welfare Departments gather feedback from their clients on how to better serve them. Analysis of the CSS results must be reported by counties in their CalWORKs County Self-Assessment (Cal-CSA) and CalWORKs System Improvement Plan (Cal-SIP).
