Phase 4 GuidanceLegend - Customer, Provider, Shared
Activities
1. Finalize O&M roles and responsibilities between the customer and provider (S)
2. Validate and agree upon Service Level Agreements (SLAs) as an input to O&M Interagency Agreements (IAA)/Contract (S)
3. Update/validate SLAs (as applicable) to ensure process steps are met that allow customers to meet agreed upon SLAs with provider (S)
4. Confirm there is adequate O&M support from provider for stabilization period written into SLA (S)

Inputs

Outputs

Stakeholders Update

Best Practice

• Given a potential dip in services immediately after Go-Live, customers should consider adding support/funding for stabilization (i.e. on-site support, Program Management Office (PMO) support, additional training)
