Currently all sections of the the IT Services Core Services Catalogue are at version 5.0 - Effective June 30, 2012
The Core Services Catalogue serves as the default service level agreement between IT Services and the BCIT community. In addition, some departments or groups will require specialized service level agreements for their unique support requirements.
The catalogue will provide answers to questions such as:
- What services does IT Services provide?
- When are these services available?
- What is supported and what is NOT supported?
- How long do you have to wait for each of these services?
Two distinct client groups are identified within the catalogue:
Core clientele are entitled to the default (base) service levels for all of our core services. Included in this group are:
- registered students
- instructional and administrative staff
BCIT's community groups are entitled to the more limited support described in the catalogue. These groups include:
- Student Association
- Faculty and Staff Association
- campus tenants
Service level descriptions
To help you identify what service levels you can expect for a particular service or product, our services are described with their characteristics and objectives. Each description also identifies:
- who is eligible for the service
- how to access the service
- client roles and responsibilities
- business processes enabled by each service
When you contact IT Services for service, we attempt to meet or exceed the target times estimated for the various services. Only seasonal high volume (e.g., at term start-up) or system-wide outages will cause us to suspend these commitments. In these circumstances, break/fix incidents take precedence over requests for new service.
Beyond base service levels
When a department or group has unique requirements for technology services or products, IT Services staff meet with group representatives (including a manager) to define, negotiate and sign off separate service-level agreements.
Catalogue updates and contacts
The catalogue is updated annually, with input from the BCIT community and in consultation between IT Services and its various vendors.
