About FDA

Median number of hours to resolve Severity One outages which occurred within the month (1)

Dictionary: The Office of Information Management and Technology provides and manages information technology (IT) and other related services to ensure FDA can carry out its mission of promoting and protecting public health in an efficient, effective, productive, and timely manner. One of the ways OIM ensures that FDA employees are able to sustain a high level of productivity is to resolve IT related issues as quickly as possible. Severity One outages are defined as a global failure where work is halted or a potential halt of work for multiple customers on a floor, building or entire Center. OIM tracks the number of Severity One outages that are received during the month and the median number of hours it took for OIM to resolve the issue. OIM strives to reduce the number of hours it takes to resolve Severity One outages and return services to our customers.
