National Outsourcing Association Comments on Cabinet Office Offshoring guidance

Cabinet Office issues offshoring guidance

Martyn Hart, Chairman of the National Outsourcing Association said:

"Government departments sending ICT offshore will happen more and more.Today's guidance is a clear indicator of that. The core principles of offshoring are the same as any outsourcing deal - consider your exit strategy right at the beginning.  Take the time to ensure it is robustly built into the contract. Data protection is crucial - the NOA welcomes the standardisation of data handing clauses.  But data is no less secure offshore - data protection clauses should be a facet of all IT outsourcing contracts. The Cabinet Office guidance is positive progress, but contains nothing new. It is good to see them catching up with best practice. If offshoring is to be a part of the austerity plan, they need to get it right."
