More and more public and private organizations decide, "to buy" instead of "to make". They decide to outsource and to buy services or whole functions. One of the most obvious candidates for many organizations is the telecom-function. The telecom market had relatively well-developed competitions at the same time, the technical development is dramatic and there are several solutions to the same requirement and high potential for rationalization, increased efficiency and/or better service levels to customers and internally. The decision to buy telecom services/functions have long-lasting consequences for all the parts involved in the procurement process. This paper investigates and analyzes the reasons for and consequences of public procurement of different types of telecom services/functions for both buying (authority) and selling (enterprise) organizations.
