Outsourcing Policy

The Outsourcing Policy outlines the company's policies on using outside vendors, consultants, or managed service providers to handle certain functions of IT.  It covers the decision to outsource, evaluation of outsourcing providers, and security controls/risks associated with outsourcing.

Outsourcing is a logical practice when specialized expertise is required, which happens frequently in the field of Information Technology (IT).  Best practices dictate that a policy be implemented and enforced that details the terms of the outsourcing relationship.
