Providers of “turnkey” Business Process Outsourcing (BPO), but also other types of procurement and supply chain outsourcing, including managed services, Knowledge Process Outsourcing (KPO), co-sourcing, integrated supply, third party logistics (3PL) and procurement/SCM technology outsourcing.

The scope may be only for certain spend categories, supply processes, and/or types of resources, but the relationship is generally a significant multi-year relationship.
