Question: Can you clarify what is happening with services?
Answer: In previous years, services were entered/managed in Clarity and applications were linked to those. There was reference to a new application being implemented for services this year, but yet service information is still in Clarity. Can you clarify what is being done with regard to services? Are they being entered/managed in Clarity or in a different tool?
It’s best to work with the team in your Department who completed the GC Service Inventory to ensure that applications can aligned as much as possible. This list of GC services is stored in another system (outside of Clarity.)
Once the GC Service Inventory is available to our team, we will do some fit-gap reports and share with the community to identify next steps and impacts.
The intent is to eventually have a single list of Services with all application linked to those services in order to inherit the mission criticality.
Further guidance will be forthcoming from TBS regarding the intersection of GC Services, APM, Mission criticality and CBAS in the coming months.
The services team has developed a FAQ which touches upon this question:
