Outsourcing contracts

If you’re outsourcing any of your operations, you’ll need to have a robust contract in place.

Legal contracts for outsourcing agreements

Outsourcing work can have many advantages for a business - perhaps to reduce your costs, get in a specialist, free-up management time or even create a bit more office space. Whatever your reasons, it's vital you get expert legal advice to help draw up the contract.

Outsourcing contracts

You’ll need to have a robust contract in place with your suppliers which covers all the necessary issues including pinning down some of the more abstract areas.  Your contract should cover:

  • services to be provided 
  • quality standards
  • price
  • staffing
  • what happens at the end of the contractual period
  • managing handover from one supplier to another, to make sure that standards are maintained during the changeover period
  • any detailed legal and regulatory requirements which may apply, for example in the public sector.
