Outsourcing Activity in UK Declines

The recent data from Information Services Group (ISG) on UK’s public sector outsourcing market shows that this year is lower compared to last year’s activity levels.

Figures from ISG’s Outsourcing Index for Europe, Middle East, and Africa (EMEA) show that the UK public sector market was worth €4.6bn for the first half, which is twice as much as this year’s €2.0bn for the same period.

The report covers IT and business process outsourcing (BPO) contracts such as finance, human resources, among others that are worth €4 million or more. However, for Q1 2013, IT contracts are identified to have led the entire region - accounting for nearly two-thirds of contracts.

Meanwhile, the public sector trend in the EMEA region noticeably declined from last year’s first half (€3.1bn) to €2.4bn this year for the same period. The UK was also identified to be the market within the EMEA with the highest figures posted since 2008, and just recently, exceeded its five-year average.

All in all, across the EMEA region, the UK maintains its position as the top destination for public sector outsourcing. In fact, €2bn worth of public sector outsourcing activity posted by the UK represents five-sixth of all public sector outsourcing activity in EMEA.
