Abstract

Describes the various types of outsourcing arrangements used in information systems, and explains some of the theoretical perspectives invoked to explain the behaviour of client, supplier, and intermediary organisations, such as client consortia. Examines some of the problems of outsourcing in the public sector, and suggests how some of the theoretical perspectives might illuminate some of the problems which have emerged in the purchasing and licensing of electronic content.
