Service Level Definitions

The CITES Help Desk has a series of goals called Service Level Definitions (SLDs) that allow us to gauge our performance in several key areas of customer service, such as availability, promptness, and consistency. These SLDs provide a foundation for guaranteed quality service by helping us to continuously appraise the needs of our customers and improve our efforts to meet them.
