The extended organization created by the amalgamation of the XSEDE program and other separately funded bodies with which XSEDE collaborates or otherwise has a formal relationship with is referred to as the XSEDE Federation (XF). All formal relationships with XSEDE will be documented via agreements that must cover a wide spectrum in both the services and responsibilities involved. Many of these agreements will be specific to the particular partner.

Some partner organizations within the XSEDE Federation fall within the Service Provider designation. Multiple types of Service Providers are defined in the XD Service Providers Forum: Charter, Membership, and Governance document available on the XSEDE Project Documents page in order to encourage participation in the Federation and to balance the need for clear expectations of service levels with the desire to be flexible. The overarching goal of the XF with respect to service providers is to encourage service providers to bring new and innovative services to XSEDE while not being overly burdensome with respect to process and requirements. Clearly defined service levels and an operational framework for partnering relationships encourage broader participation, expand the services available to the community, and form the underpinnings of a pervasive national cyberinfrastructure ecosystem.
