Description o utsourcing is already for longer period used in private sector as a tool of rationalization of internal processes. a s the result of New Public Management changes it was started to be implemented also in public organizations. t he paper starts with brief introduction of the concept of outsourcing, both in relation to private and public sector practices. i ts core parts are devoted to analysis of experience with outsourcing of internal services in private and public organizations in the Czech r epublic and Slovakia. Some interesting conclusions are derived from the research. First, outsourcing is relatively frequently used by private firms in the Czech r epublic. Second, we may argue that the “quality” of implementation of outsourcing in the private sector in the Czech r epublic is a bit limited. r esults from our analysis support general expectations that in conditions where the pri - vate sector is not able to deal with outsourcing perfectly (and risk of corruption is rela - tively high), the practice of outsourcing in the public sector is of limited quality.
