Mastering Agency Outsourcing: Strategies for Success in Government Projects

Mastering Agency Outsourcing: Strategies for Success in Government Projects

Anthony Fox-Davies, Evgeniy Maslovskiy (Spleshka)

Successful and growing agencies can find themselves short on senior staff when working on large government contracts. These are typically high-profile projects with significant budgets and come with specific requirements such as security vetting of staff.

High-quality delivery is essential, so the agency needs to be careful about who they add to their talent pool to fulfill the client’s needs. However, finding highly skilled supplementary resources that will gel with the in-house team is hard and places an additional management burden on running the agency.
