Outsourcing Contracts

Outsourcing? Secure your Best Interests with Help from HCB

The current landscape of the economy is leading many business owners and public sector organisations to seek out a more cost effective way of working, and in many cases, outsourcing various tasks or specific projects rather than running them using in-house resources is proving a popular solution.

All too often, however, organisations tie themselves into outsourcing or procurement agreements that are not in their best interests and which do not do enough to incentivise a service provider. Entering into a contract that proves difficult to leave, and may not protect your organisation from financial or reputational harm, could be highly damaging.

Where Outsourcing is a Good Business Move, it’s a Move Worth Making Properly

Here at HCB, our commercial law specialists believe that where outsourcing is a good move for a business, it’s a move worth making properly, with everything thoroughly considered. So from the initial planning of an agreement through ongoing contract management and on to termination, we are here to provide the guidance you need to make an outsourcing contract work as optimally as possible for you – and to protect you.

Here is how we can help with your outsourcing and procurement requirements:

  • Advising on the selection of outsourced service providers
  • Identifying risks and benefits for both parties
  • Drafting and negotiating contracts
  • Contract management including measuring performance
  • Exit strategy advice
  • Outsourced contract dispute resolution

Can you be sure your outsourcing arrangement will deliver? What if it doesn’t, are you prepared? Can you get out of the agreement without financial penalty? Do you have a backup?

At HCB, we work closely with our clients to ensure their outsourced contracts reduce the risks of outsourcing as much as possible. We liaise with service providers to set down realistic objectives, and negotiate effective dispute and agreement termination conditions. We then go even further by ensuring you have a ‘plan b’ in place to protect your vital functions should a contractor fail. Consider us your commercial partners, working always to secure your best interests when it comes to outsourced contracts.
