Outsourcing takes place when a facilities organization transfers the ownership of one or more business processes to a supplier. The initiative to outsource often originates in the facilities department. The key to outsourcing is different from business relationships in which the facilities organization retains control of the process or, in other words, tells the supplier how to do the work. It is the transfer of ownership that defines outsourcing and often makes it such a challenging, painful process. In outsourcing, the facilities organization does not instruct the supplier how to perform its task but, instead, focuses on communicating what results it wants to achieve. It leaves the process of accomplishing those results to the supplier.
