New! DAS Risk Management SLA
Under the auspices of the EGS Customer Utility Board (CUB), DAS Risk Management (DAS RM) and a group of customer agency representatives recently completed the development of the new Risk Management Service Level Agreement (SLA). The final SLA document was voted and approved unanimously by the member of the Board during the March 2014 CUB meeting.
The objective of this SLA is to ensure both DAS RM staff and customers understand and agree how the services will be performed and the responsibilities and expectations of each party. The SLA describes DAS RM's services, identifies service level performance targets and responsibilities, and documents service management processes agreed upon by DAS and representative from all four Customer Utility Boards. The SLA is a working document meant to reflect the continuous changes in services and operating processes delivered by DAS, and the change in service level expectations agreed upon between DAS RM and customers.
