Outsourcing cos may see more pressure from clients

Bangalore: Outsourcing services providers may come under increased pressure from their clients, with chief Information Officers (CIOs) at firms globally planning to squeeze more value out of their outsourcing arrangements, a study by global consultancy KPMG International said.

According to KPMG's latest report -- "From Cost to Value" -- CIOs surveyed worldwide have accorded top priority to getting more value out of their outsourcing contracts.

Over two-thirds of the 450 CIOs surveyed globally indicated that they want to get more out of their outsourcing contracts in terms of the price to quality ratio.

An even higher number of respondents expect to bring increased pressure to bear on their outsourcing partners, the survey noted.

"Understandably, CIOs are pursuing value by reviewing outsourcing arrangements and retaining a firm focus on cost optimisation, for example," KPMG's UK advisory partner, Bryan Cruickshank, said.

This also demonstrates the CIOs intent to enhance their role as executives focusing on in-house operations to involve making decisions on external activities, he said.

"These days, CIOs also expect IT to contribute directly to realising the business strategy and to have a central role in management," Cruickshank added.

The survey revealed that 81 per cent of the respondents felt that getting value from IT must be their top priority. Cost optimisation was second on the priority list of the CIOs (58 per cent of respondents), ahead of portfolio management (51 per cent), although it could be argued that both of these can be seen as sub-sets of the overall theme of extracting value from IT investments, the survey added.

Govt. jobs made scandalous by corrupt recruitments

Hyderabad: The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) is in the process of investigating major corruption scandals. Scams in recruitment for government jobs and institutionalized bribery in regulatory agencies are some of the areas that CBI is eyeing at.

The CBI has recently exposed a series of scams in AICTE (All-India Council of Technical Education), the Medical Council of India and most recently, the Railway Recruitment Board examinations. The state government insisting on state-level recruitment, cheating in professional examinations, and corruption in regulatory agencies are the main causes behind most of the major scandals. The Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) is also in the process of unearthing corruption.

A person who gets a job by paying a bribe obviously becomes a corrupt official. Hence, stopping corruption at the recruitment stage can contribute a lot in the fight against corruption, according to a former director-general of the ACB. He added that the CBI is comparatively more independent than the ACB.

The ACB of the state needs to focus much more on state-level recruitment scams and the irregularities in regulatory agencies. But all too often its hands are tied by none other than the state government. By refusing to give permission for prosecution of top corrupt government employees, the state government itself plays a major role in tacitly supporting corruption. Therefore, ACB is now mostly restricted to investigating disproportionate assets cases and making surprise checks.

Five cases against public servants of AICTE have been registered by the CBI (Hyderabad Zone) for allowing the institutions to operate even when they don't have the mandatory infrastructure. In the investigation of the Medical Council of India, the CBI found that several medical colleges in the state indulged in irregularities in connivance with MCI chief Mr. Ketan Desai.

The latest case of corruption emanates from the Railway Recruitment Board (RRB). The CBI DIG, Mr V.V. Lakshminarayana, says that the modus operandi designed by the ADRM, A.K. Jagannadham, with the help of his agents and officials prevented meritorious and deserving aspirants from getting recruited. Most of the scams take place in single-level examination for any recruitment in a government job or admission into a professional educational institution.

According to the CBI DIG, Mr V.V. Lakshminarayana, the only criterion for selection in a written examination is the written exam and the scam lies in leaking question papers or manipulating results. The possibility of irregularities would be decreased if there are multi-level selection criteria like a written exam, interview etc.

Even the Army is not free from corruption. A recent scam was exposed in Army recruitment in Warangal district where non-locals tried to pass themselves off as locals in order to qualify in the exam. These scams not only signify the root of corruption in our society, but also show how poor the quality of government services are.
