1 Introduction 1.1

Vision Statement

The vision of [Service Provider] in the area of service management is as follows: [Insert the vision statement defined as part of service strategy] This policy forms a key part of the realisation of that vision. 1.2

Purpose

The purpose of this policy document is to set out the expectations and intentions of the management of [Organization Name] in the area of request fulfilment. This policy will inform and shape the processes, procedures, organizational structure and resourcing that are applied in support of effective request fulfilment. Unlike incident management where the goal is to reduce the number and impact of incidents, the processing of service requests is a reflection of the normal operation of the business. Requests such as new user creations and software installations must therefore be given the attention they deserve to keep the organization running smoothly and to minimize delays within the business. However, controls must be put in place to ensure that service requests are correctly authorized and carried out and that support resources are used efficiently. 1.3

Scope

The scope of this policy is defined according to the following parameters:    

Organizational o [List organizations and parts of those organizations covered] Geographical o [List locations from which service requests will be submitted and managed] Services o [Define the services covered by the policy] Technical o [If necessary, cover the technology that may give rise to service requests covered by this policy]

This policy covers all service requests recorded by [Service Provider] in support of the customers and users of services defined in the service catalogue. The following areas are specifically excluded from this policy: [Describe any areas that need to be clearly stated as outside the scope]

Policy Compliance

Whilst success against some aspects of this policy will depend upon the resources, systems and processes put in place by management, compliance with this policy is largely mandatory for all employees of [Organization Name]. Where appropriate and at management discretion, instances of non-compliance may be subject to formal disciplinary action in accordance with organizational HR procedures. 1.6
