Despite the economy, the majority of companies still plan to pursue outsourcing but volume and prices will be lower, according to a recent survey.

The International Association of Outsourcing Professionals surveyed 450 organizations from 20 countries that attended its recent annual conference. The survey found 75 per cent of organizations will do the same or more outsourcing in response to the financial crisis. They also said that greater contract flexibility is their top need.
