Customer Service:    


Customer service is an important element of any organization.  Administrative Affairs is committed to providing quality service to our customers.  This involves the monitoring of individuals receiving the service (customer), and individuals responsible for rendering the services (department).  Our goal is to ensure customer satisfaction.  The level of customer service will be tracked through measurable objectives.




Effective leadership is key to any organization.  Administrative Affairs will play an active role in developing leadership skills and standards to achieve our goal by providing each department with training and staff development for employees and managers.  The level of leadership will be tracked through measurable objectives.


Goods and Services:


The existence of any operation relies on quality goods and services.  Administrative Affairs will strive to ensure that customers genuinely feel that they have received an equal exchange of goods and/or services for the monetary value placed on contracted services. The quality of goods and services will be tracked through measurable objectives.
