Fuel Estimates: Since the 1990’s, SRC has conducted surveys related to fuel consumption for various state agencies. Analyses of fuel consumption data for vehicles used off-road such as motorboats, ATV’s, aircraft, and snowmobiles are provided on a recurring basis to the managing agency. Using the survey data collected, SRC computes statewide estimates of annual fuel usage for these motorized vehicles.

Program Evaluation/Customer Service: SRC routinely conducts program evaluation surveys for various OSU Colleges, Departments, and other units to provide critical feedback for program improvement and collect post-graduate outcomes. Other Oregon agencies such as Oregon Department of Revenue and Oregon DMV have used SRC to conduct surveys for their customer service evaluations. Based on Oregon Department of Administrative Services service performance guidelines, SRC conducts a mail and mixed-mode (mail and web) survey on a quarterly basis for Oregon DMV and provides frequency analyses to the agency. Statewide DMV office managers use these results to measure performance of customer services.

Diversity: SRC has developed questionnaires and collected data for a number of clients to evaluate various diversity topics including general climate, interactions with staff and administration, and overall diversity of the organization. A survey is conducted for the Oregon State University Graduate School on an ongoing basis and includes several questions regarding inclusivity within the OSU environment.

Needs Assessment: Several Oregon public agencies contract with SRC to provide large-scale assessment of various aspects of the public infrastructure important to Oregon residents and collects resident views on the quality of infrastructure maintenance and transportation needs across the state.

Recreational/Environmental: Other Oregon agencies have relied on SRC to collect data regarding various types of recreational and environmental topics. Subjects include boating, fishing, and hunting.
