If an outsourcing contract is truly for a fixed period, we need to think about what will happen as the term draws to a close
Will we be locked into a single supplier forever?
Consider the termination clauses right from the start
Organisations typically don't start the re-negotiation process early enough, and end up having to renew with the existing supplier
It's in the existing supplier's interest to slow down this process in order to retain the contract
TUPE applies to all subsequent transfers
The Süzen case applies here too
In practice, some FM companies promise their new staff a new career when they join. They ensure the FM contract permits staff to remain with them if the contract is moved on.
