Customer Services Service Level Agreement
The mission of Customer Services is to provide a formal interface between Information & Technology Services and MSU clientele (students, faculty, and staff).
The efficiency and quality of Customer Services are measured by speed of response to service calls; rapid identification of callers, problems, and potential solutions; rigorous call follow-up; accurate recording and analysis of operations to identify trends, correct systemic weaknesses, and reinforce strengths.
