You should consider the following as the components of the requirements you will set for a potential outsourcing partner;

  • Possession of Skills/Talent Required for the Task: You definitely wouldn’t want to end up with a content creator when what you’re looking for is a web developer, would you? So, in setting the qualifications for the outsourcing partner, you should clearly list the exact skills you’re looking for. This will help cut down on the number of outsourcing providers that would bid for the project, and make the hiring task easier for you.
  • Ability to Meet Deadline: You wouldn’t want any form of delay regarding the outsourced task. Therefore, you should also set clear expectations in terms of the time frame of the outsourced task. If you need to tie any condition to ensure timely delivery, don’t hesitate to do so. For instance, you could spell out up to 20 percent deduction from the agreed fee if the task is not completed and delivered as at when due. This will help facilitate timely completion and delivery of the outsourced task.
  • Ability to Deliver the Required Quality: Also, in setting the pace and qualifications of who gets the project you wish to outsource, you should spell out the exact quality outcome you are expecting from the completed task.

For instance, in the case of an outsourced article creation, you can outline ability to integrate superb SEO, no typo and grammatical error, the article should be 100 percent unique and so on. This helps provide direction and focus for the outsourcing partner. Finally, you should also consider spelling out confidentiality as part of the requirements for a business task you want to outsource. This is especially necessary for business tasks that involve sensitive information and components. You wouldn’t want your competitors to lay hold of your formulas or tactics for instance.
