Outsourcing arrangements often fail without appropriate governance.
Outsourcing is the delegation of non-essential or core tasks of a business to an outside company. Many businesses have considered outsourcing as a way to lower costs or focus on core competences, and as such will outsource IT systems management, human resources, accounting, or other aspects of running a business to third parties.
We have been doing outsourcing in one form or another for over 25 years. We use our experience to predict where friction may arise and set up processes to avoid it. Regardless of the size or scope of a deal, we work with our clients to put together agreements that reflect the realities of the business deal, and the related risks, and provide the flexibility to make it work and keep it relevant. We’ll help you negotiate pro-active contracts that suit your needs and protect your interests.
An outsourcing arrangement requires careful consideration of many issues, as the responsibilities that would normally be in the hands of the business are now split between two parties. It can be difficult, especially when something goes wrong, to sort out who is responsible to whom, and for what, unless the parties have a properly drafted outsourcing agreement to guide them.
