Understanding Service Requests

A service request is a request within an agency to perform a task or service for its citizens and employees. A service request can be any request by a person for any type action for which the agency is responsible.

Example Use Case

  • A citizen calls about potholes in need of repair.

  • An agency inspector approves the plumbing on a new building and he requests that the agency turn on the water for the building.
