A SLA, defines the level of service expected by a customer from a supplier, laying out the metrics by which that service is measured, and the remedies or penalties, if any, should the agreed-on service levels not be achieved. Usually, SLAs are between companies and external suppliers, but they may also be between two departments within a company.
The main schedules included in this template are:
- Levels of Service
- Service Costs
- Duties and Responsibilities
- Problem Management and Reporting
