Is this question on-topic?
Other non-software questions that were this industry specific have been rejected in the past, if I recall correctly. It seems that this question is too narrow for workplace, no?
This question is definitely not about navigating the professional workplace. It's specifically about how to negotiate outsourcing agreements. Furthermore, the asker is looking for a list of things he/she is missing instead of asking something more specific. Stack Exchange doesn't really work very well for "brainstorming" type questions.
If edited, such a question might work on another Stack Exchange site.
