ICT Operating Principles

Operating Principles

Service availability is number 1 priority  for ICT

  • ICT services will not be federated within  directorates. ICT’s Business Engagement  Team will align by Directorates; they will  understand their business needs

  • SLAs / OLAs will be the backbone by  which ICT will deliver and respond

  • The principle of ICT in MCC is to ‘Buy not  Build’ technical solutions

  • ICT delivered solutions will be kept ‘Vanilla’  or ‘Standard - Out of the Box’ wherever  possible

  • “Logical” ICT functions to be grouped  together

  • Core hours: 07.45 – 18.30 Monday to  Friday
  • Out of Hours: 18.31 – 07.44 Monday to  Friday, and 24/7 Saturday, Sunday and  Bank Holidays
  • Out of Hours support will be provided  around MCC defined ‘Critical Services  SLA’s via an on call rota only
