The FTI Consulting IT Outsourcing practice focuses on the planning and execution of outsourcing transformation with the goals of maximizing the return on the assists, minimizing risk and improving operational effectiveness. Outsourcing planning activities include objective/goals definition, vendor selection, T&C definition, RFP issuance and SOW negotiation. Our solutions ensure that what is being outsourced — business case, required vendor SLA’s and performance requirements — are well defined, measurable and built into the vendor agreement. Our implementation execution activities address the planning, governance, communication, transition and execution of the transition to outsourcing.
