SharePoint - Sample Service Level Agreement (SLA)

This is a very basic sample of a service level agreement for SharePoint.  This would be more typical of providing an SLA to an internal department of an organization. Providing an SLA to an external party would probably include an additional set of items around penalties, charges, terms of use etc.
