R11)

AMI Service Level Objective
These AMI SLOs will initiate upon the completion if the AMI project. The FATHOM system is an “eventually consistent” distributed computing system. As such this precludes a 100% data match guarantee at any given moment for reporting and auditing since multiple systems are making multiple updates at any given moment. The “eventually consistent” computing model guarantees anti-entropy and reconciliation if no new updates to systems are made.

Once every week, FATHOM will provide for a comparison reporting spot checking a minimum of 25% of the weekly raw read population and ensure the data matches between the headend system and FATHOM data store.  Should this spot check fail to match greater than or equal to 95% of the raw reads between the headend and the FATHOM data store then FATHOM shall review 100% of all reads for the week, within 72 hours. In the event FATHOM fails to achieve this SLO, the AMI SLA shall be considered breached, and Customer shall receive a service credit of 5% of the FATHOM Prime fee for that month per occurrence.  In no circumstance shall the service credits exceed 15% of the total FATHOM Prime fee for that month.

Once every week, FATHOM will provide for a comparison reporting spot checking of consumption data on a minimum of 25% accounts between FATHOM Prime and FATHOM U2You.  This comparison will exclude read data that FATHOM knows or believes to be incorrect or corrupted.  Should this spot check fail to match 98% of the consumption then FATHOM shall undergo a review of 100% of all accounts in FATHOM U2You and FATHOM Prime for the week, within 72 hours. In the event FATHOM fails to achieve this SLO, the AMI SLA shall be considered breached, and Customer shall receive a service credit of 5% of the FATHOM Prime fee for that month per occurrence.  In no circumstance shall the service credits exceed 15% of the total FATHOM Prime fee for that month.

1)

[SOS #17] Call Center Service Level Objective (SLO)
70% of customer contacts will be addressed within 120 seconds (average of the daily at the end of the month excluding Mondays and Tuesdays after holiday weekends).  If the Call Center SLO is not achieved, a service credit will be applied according to the schedule below.

 

Call Center Service Level Tier

Service Credit

 

69.999% - 65%

5% of that month’s Call Center Fee

 

64.999% - 60%

10% of that month’s Call Center Fee

 

<60%

15% of that month’s Call Center Fee

 


The service credit may be applied towards additional services (not recurring fees) procured from FATHOM by Customer.  In no circumstances shall the service credit exceed 15% of that month’s total Call Center fee.

 

2)

Revenue Management Service Level Objective (SLO)
FATHOM Revenue Management shall maintain an on-time billing SLO of 99% or greater.  If that SLO is not achieved, the following service credit schedule shall apply.

 

Call Center Service Level Tier

Service Credit

 

98.999% - 95%

5% of that month’s Revenue Management Fee

 

94.999% - 90%

10% of that month’s Revenue Management Fee

 

<90%

15% of that month’s Revenue Management Fee

 


The service credit may be applied towards additional services (not recurring fees) procured from FATHOM by Customer.  In no circumstances shall the service credit exceed 15% of that month’s total Revenue Management fee.

 

3)

Call Abandonment Rate Service Level Objective
FATHOM shall maintain a call abandonment rate of not higher than 7% averaged for the month.  This shall be reported to Customer monthly.  If FATHOM fails to achieve the SLO, FATHOM will make a reasonable attempt to diagnose the cause and implement appropriate actions to attempt to restore performance back to the

D-14

 


Exhibit D

Scope of Services

 

SLO.  As the rate is not fully in FATHOM’s control, there is no service level penalty.

 

4)

Billing accuracy shall be measured based on the ratio of the number of canceled/rebilled bill pairs to the total number of bills.  Canceled/rebilled pairs are defined as those that are reasonably known to have been due to FATHOM data inputs or actions, not those related to customer or client data inputs or actions. FATHOM Revenue Management shall maintain a billing accuracy SLO of 99% or greater.  If that SLO is not achieved, the following service credit schedule shall apply.

 

Call Center Service Level Tier

Service Credit

99% - 95%

5% of that month’s Revenue Management Fee

<95% - 90%

10% of that month’s Revenue Management Fee

<90%

15% of that month’s Revenue Management Fee


For clarity, a cancelled bill without an associated rebill does not contribute to as an inaccurate bill to the bill accuracy ratio unless there was no re-bill due to it falling outside the 90 day time limit for re-billing.

The service credit may be applied towards additional services (not recurring fees) procured from FATHOM by Customer.  In no circumstances shall the service credit exceed 15% of that month’s total Revenue Management fee.
