Sourcing and Offshoring
Sourcing refers to all types of purchasing of goods and services, with the aim of procuring the requisite quality at the best possible price.
Offshoring aims to leverage staff in lower-cost locations when procuring services. Offshoring requires process changes and impacts the skills mix of local staff, as work will be performed over multiple locations in typically different time zones and cultures.
