13. MEASURING TOOLS
As of the Initiation Date, the measuring tools and methodologies set forth in Exhibit B.3 (Measuring Tools and Methodology) represent acceptable measuring tools and methodologies for the Critical Service Levels and Service Level Objectives designated.
If there are any Critical Service Levels for which the measuring tools and methodologies have not been agreed upon by Gap and Supplier, are included in Exhibit B.3 (Measuring Tools and Methodology), and Supplier fails to propose a measuring tool for such Critical Service Level that is acceptable to Gap prior to the date upon which Supplier shall be responsible for Service Level performance and Service Level Credits due for Service Level Default, such failure shall be deemed a Floor Service Level Default for the Critical Service Level until Supplier proposes and implements an acceptable measuring tool.
Tools for new Critical Service Levels will be implemented according to the Change Control Procedures.
If, after the Initiation Date or the implementation of tools for new Critical Service Levels, Supplier desires to use a different measuring tool for a Critical Service Level, Supplier shall provide written notice to Gap, in which event the Parties will reasonably adjust the measurements as necessary to account for any increased or decreased sensitivity in the new measuring tools; provided that, if the Parties cannot agree on the required adjustment, Supplier will continue to use the measuring tool that had been initially agreed to by the Parties.
It is not anticipated that changes in the monitoring tools will drive changes in Service Levels; rather, the need to collect and accurately reflect the performance data should drive the development or change in performance monitoring tools.
