CIO.com

Over the past five years, as outsourcing in the commercial sector has grown steadily but modestly, the annual contract value of outsourcing deals in the public sector has more than doubled, according to analysis by outsourcing consultancy ISG. Today, public sector outsourcing deals account for two-thirds of the annual contract value in the market overall. Much of the activity is happening in the U.S., which consists almost entirely of information technology work and driven in large part by Department of Defense spending.
