German term or phrase:Leistungskontingent
It´s a heading in the Leistungsscheinen I am still considering, the sub-contracts under a framing contract.
Die Leistungen werden für den unter Ziffer 2. definierten Leistungsumfang über den gesamten Zeitraum nach Ziffer 3. erbracht.
Die Leistungen des Help-Desk werden von den Mitarbeitern des Vor-Ort-Supports mit übernommen (siehe Leistungsschein 2)."
The next heading is "Vergütung des Leistungskontingentes".
Explanation: In compliance with the conditions set forth under item 2, services shall be rendered [performed] for the [contract's] full duration and in accordance with to item 3.
Help-desk services will be assigned to (taken over by) associates of on-site support (also see 2nd rider to the sevice contract).
Thanks everyone. This was difficult because in my source text the word sometimes has the sense of the English "contingent" in the sense of group of people. But it occurs in each Lesitungsschein with the heading and subtext I gave as context, and it is the point where last details of the services are given. So "Specific Services" as always, "in this context" :-) 4 KudoZ points were awarded for this answer
Explanation: I understand Leistungskontingent (Kontingent = quota) to mean the same as Leistungsumfang, i.e. "scope of services" (which is again a term that came up in previous translations into German for another telco provider). Another option would be scope of performance.
Btw: I'm assuming the "framing contract" is a Rahmenvertrag - the standard translation would be "master agreement" ... ;-)
