Competence, specificity and outsourcing: impact on the complexity of the contract

Bertrand QUELIN and Jerome BARTHELEMY

Abstract: This paper focuses on the link between the three types of specificity and the complexity of outsourcing contracts because specificity is generally considered as the most important transaction cost attribute. It also integrates external uncertainty in the model. External uncertainty is a multidimensional concept that reflects the lack of knowledge about events that may take place in the environment
