Australian Public Sector Sourcing Models part 1
Conclusion: Without experience and knowledge of the local outsourcing market, public sector agencies risk inefficiencies when developing outsourcing practices that are sufficiently flexible to change as the agency’s circumstances change.
When outsourcing public sector agencies require solid governance, accountability processes and regular reviews to ensure the approach taken will suit their internal structures, policies and IT needs.
Ongoing information support is also critical so the agency has a thorough understanding of the changing environment, local outsourcing market and lessons learned from other public sector agencies that have adopted different outsourcing strategies.
