rightsourcing

Rightsourcing is selecting the best way to procure a service and deciding whether a company is best served by performing a business requirement in-house (insourcing) or contracting it out to a third-part service provider (outsourcing).  Rightsourcing literally means "choosing the correct source."

Analysis for making the decision may be based on cost savings, but it also takes into account quality and expediency.  In some larger companies, a vendor management office (VMO) is responsible for carrying out a comparative analysis and recommending the most appropriate sourcing arrangement.
