In order for this to happen, an agreement typically an SLA is created that describes the type of service that will be provided by the provider to the client/customer. More specifically, an SLA is a contract which formally defines the service being performed by the provider in addition to detailing various aspects like roles, responsibilities, quality, scope, payment terms and processes.
