Requests(RITM) Service Level Agreements (SLA)


Request Completing Time SLA

ServiceNow Request Item(RITM) SLA's are tracked based on the delivery time per request form. SLA notifications for RITMs will notify the following users:

RITM SLA is based on the Expected Request Fulfillment time and it is different for each request type. Most of the requests are expected to be delivered between 2 to 5 business days and 10 business days is the maximum delivery time frame for DIT fulfilled requests.

The SLA notifications are sent at 50%, 75% and 100% of elapsed time if not fulfilled.

Example: If DBA Request form has a delivery time of 5 business days and once submitted, then SLA breach notifications will go to agents at 3 business days(50%), 4 business days(75%) and 5 business days (100%).

Note: 1 business day  = 9 hours.

The table below shows who will be notified at different SLA elapsed time
