Sounds to me like you're using partial outsourcing already - which
makes a lot of sense. You can't have experts for everything on your
company's payroll - e.G. few companies have their own painters, as
they're not needed daily and it is easier to hire them on a hourly

We've aligned ourselves with some very capable software services companies. It's not a question of quality and in most cases I think our full cost is fair but it's hard getting people to look behind the hourly rate.

That sounds very reasonable. Did i get this right that your management
is looking for a fully outsourced IT? (i.E. with no IT staff on their
own, all handled by another company?). Or is it just about switching
your service company to another? If the latter, that doesn't make much
sense to me if the only gripe you're having right now is price.

Sorry for sounding cagey but I'm trying to avoid saying things that open all the other debate points....
