The SURF procurement services complaints procedure
SURF is always striving to improve its provision of services. Customer complaints play a key role in this process.
Complaints about SURF's services are an opportunity to improve them
Complaints present us with an opportunity to correct existing inaccuracies and to improve our current processes. A complaint can be a signal alerting us that a working method is not as effective as it should be.
Submitting a complaint about SURF's procurement services
You can submit a complaint by e-mail or telephone to any SURF employee. You can also use the online form on our website or get in touch with our Customer Manager Maaike Hazewinkel directly. Please let us know about your complaint as soon as possible following the incident to which it relates. To handle your complaint, SURF needs the following information:
- The incident(s) motivating you to submit the complaint.
- The time and place of the incident.
- The reason you are unhappy with what happened.
- The employees involved, if possible.
- Your request/suggestion(s).
