Third-party outsourcing to outsource a third party?

Puzzling RFP ProcessThere are some RFP trends out there that I find puzzling.  Now, I’m not anti-RFP. We always put forth our best efforts for the RFPs that come in. I actually find it rewarding to have an opportunity to distinguish our approach to  service delivery and cost containment.
