Successfully Outsourcing & Negotiating Projects

Are you considering outsourcing elements of your business, be they strategic (network and IT costs) or non-strategic (accounts payable functions)? If so, you will need to carry out the following:

  • Determine a baseline for the in-house cost of delivering the service that is being considered for outsourcing.
  • Identify opportunities for immediate cost reduction through a detailed third party contract review and overall review of in-scope staff.
  • Conduct a feasibility study on the potential benefits from outsourcing.
  • Manage requests for tenders from relevant managed service partners.
  • Carry out a subsequent evaluation of vendor offering and determine the ‘best fit' business partner.
  • Complete the due diligence process with the preferred supplier and the subsequent negotiation of commercial terms of the contract.
  • Complete the transition of service to the new outsourced partner including the transfer of in-scope staff under the relevant T.U.P.E. (Transfer of Undertakings [Protection of Employment]) legislation.

Negotiating and implementing outsourcing agreements is a complex area, entailing the management of diverse interests, both within and outside the organisation.

If you are outsourcing, we can support you across all phases of the Outsourcing Project Lifecycle - from completing the feasibility study through to the negotiation preparation and execution phase.

We are experts at outsourcing, having managed a significant IT contract in excess of €650m for a major outsource provider. We also negotiated contracts of over €500m for Telefonica O2 , including the transfer of up to 300 staff to the outsource provider.

If you would like your outsourcing projects negotiated and implemented successfully, please email us today or call us on 086 043 3625.
