The provision of information technology services is often outsourced to external suppliers whose profit focus can put them at odds with an organisation’s long term interests. Performance incentivised managers will often ride roughshod over strategy to enhance their career prospects because no one foresaw the long term consequences of short term targets built into contracts.

Lawyers may understand the legal impact of contract clauses but few have the strategic experience in information technology to translate clauses into real-life consequences. We have direct experience of the tricks and restrictive practices used by suppliers and can help you or your client avoid the pitfalls.

Abracus provides a contract review service that brings to bear decades of experience in outsourced contract negotiations. For those instances where remedial action is required, Abracus can provide expert analysis of existing contracts, with delivery assessed against quantified benefits, and the strategic interests of the customer.
