Outsourcing as a management tool made its appearance in the late eighties as companies came under increasing pressure to find more effective ways to achieve their goals. Companies successfully used outsourcing and it resulted in the same or better level of service for savings of 15% or greater, thereby reducing the company’s operating costs as well as increasing shareholder value. Outsourcing releases management to focus on its core business. It functions by eliminating the need to oversee the day-to-day operations of Purchasing. Since its inception, the usage and scope of outsourcing has grown steadily.
