SLA/OLA

I am having a doubt when it come to OLA and SLA part (enduser -IT with their internal groups -vendor support ) * ex : lets say I have received a call regarding backup solution at 8:00 and as per my incident catalogue for P1 I have to respond to the end user within 30 Mins and resolve it within 2 Hrs, issue has been escalated from service desk to Systemadmin then Systemadmin tried for 30 Mins and he didn't solve it then he logged a ticket with the vendor to fix it . Where is the OLA and SLA here? Do you consider it between the vendor and Systemadmin as OLA or sla as it looks like internal team to the end user ( from end user perspective)?

Answer:
SLA is a formal contract between IT service provider and customer. OLA is a contract between IT service provider and another unit of the same organization. Is Systemadmin would be completely different organizational unit - you can define OLA with them. Usually, they are part of the I T Service Management team and there is no OLA with them.
On the other side, IT service management organization signs Underpinning Contract (UC) with vendor.
