GPSoC supplier service performance

GPSOC supplier Service Performance for December 2017

You can compare key aspects of GPSoC supplier services, such as:

  • incident resolution
  • service desk performance
  • system availability 

KPI data is provided by suppliers and published without validation to make it available quickly. The data is checked during the monthly performance review cycle, with errors addressed at that stage. The KPI reports are therefore subject to change. 

HSSI reporting

Higher Severity Service Incidents (HSSI), sometimes referred to by suppliers as 'major incidents', are incidents that cause a serious interruption of business activities. Once resolved, suppliers must a HSSI Report within 10 days.

This normally includes the incident background, incident handling, impact, resolution activities, root cause and preventative/improvement actions. Depending on the circumstances, we may conduct a post-incident review.

Latest HSSI reports

Some safety incidents or security issues are not publically available, to ensure that safety and security guidelines are followed.
