The University of London and insourcing
The University of London supports for the principle of insourcing services and is already bringing front of house, portering, post room, and AV services back inhouse by the end of May 2019. It is applying the same review process to the other externally contracted services, which should be completed by 2020 at the latest. This staged approach is to avoid substantial financial penalties from breaking contracts, and to assure affordability with the view of supporting key academic activities which are at the heart of the University.
