Outsourcing

Spending on IT outsourcing by state and local government agencies in the US is expected to increase from about $10bn (£5.9bn) this year to more than $23bn (£13.6bn) by 2008.

According to the "State & Local Outsourcing MarketView", published by consulting firm Input, shortages in experienced government IT workers and state revenues are factors driving the outsourcing increase.

Repetitive processes and transactions, such as Medicaid and welfare payments, are the types of services that will most likely be turned over to outside suppliers.
