Outsourcing contracts of all shapes and sizes have been drafted and negotiated in ever-increasing numbers since the early 1990s and the size of the market has increased (and continues to increase) dramatically.
As these contracts come up for renewal it is useful to reflect on what has worked and what has not.
This session focuses on some of the issues currently troubling customers, service providers and advisers with their outsourcing contracts, including considering the appropriateness of post-contract verification, latest developments in limitations and exclusions of liability, ensuring the scope of the services are properly structured and making effective use of service levels, getting the benchmarking provisions right and ensuring a balanced approach to step-in rights. Best practice for contract renewals and exit management will also be discussed.
