Service Management Organization Overview Tuesday October 25, 2005
Introduction • VITA is pleased to announce the implementation of a Service Management Organization - known as an “SMO”. As communicated in our Employee Dialogue meetings, this is an important step in the continued transformation of VITA and will enable us to continue focusing on improving infrastructure service delivery. • This presentation is designed to provide you with an overview of the SMO and address questions you may have on what an SMO is and its current status as a separate distinct directorate within VITA. • SMO senior roles will be posted on October 26, 2005 and the remaining SMO roles will be posted during the week of October 31, 2005.
What is a Service Management Organization? • A Service Management Organization (SMO) manages the infrastructure services delivered – regardless of whether these services are delivered in-house or by a PPEA Infrastructure Partner. • The SMO is the single point of accountability within VITA for the effective management and improvement of infrastructure services. • The SMO will draw on other VITA Directorates to support their work, for example Finance and Supply Chain Management. • Within the context of a PPEA Infrastructure partnership, the SMO will also ensure that the Infrastructure Partner provides the services they committed to and that VITA also meets its contractual obligations.
Why do we need a Service Management Organization? The SMO will: • Ensure infrastructure services deliver an appropriate level of performance to VITA’s customers; • Engage customers via the existing Customer Relationship Managers in place today and support the interactions between infrastructure services and customers; • Provide visibility of how the performance of IT infrastructure services has improved and its ‘value for money’. Within the context of a PPEA Infrastructure Partnership, the SMO will also • Establish a single point of accountability for managing a PPEA infrastructure contractual agreement and local points for service delivery concerns; • Define clear accountabilities and responsibilities between VITA and the Infrastructure Partner for service delivery; • Proactively manage the realization of benefits from the partnership.
