Dalibor Stanimirovic

Public sector management in Slovenia has been following the trends in information technology (IT) outsourcing since the mid-nineties of the last century.

The paper focuses on in-depth analysis of the critical success factors, benefits and risks within the concept of IT outsourcing, while employing the international studies and primarily the results of own research examining the current state of IT outsourcing in Slovenian municipalities.
