What is Low Cost Domestic Sourcing (LCD)?

Amrita Tahiliani JoshiFor over two decades, sourcing for services across both IT and Business Process sectors has gone global. The shift “offshore” has caused vigorous debate among industry, government, and the media on the impact of globalization on U.S. innovation, and the socio-economic effect on the U.S. workforce. In response, IT services providers have been examining ways to deliver more cost effective IT solutions domestically by looking at new U.S. locations as potential sourcing destinations.

TechAmerica Foundation was pleased to host a presentation by Amrita Tahiliani Joshi, President of Ahilia Inc., who provided an overview of how U.S. state governments, government agencies and private companies who are interested in promoting low cost domestic sourcing destinations in their state can:

  • Identify which specific locations in their state would be attractive sourcing destinations;
  • Identify potential “niche” focuses (skill sets, company type, industry, etc.) that may be appropriate for their specific LCD; and
  • Gain a better understanding of the criteria U.S. corporations and Global Service Providers are looking for when choosing a LCD location.

This guide should help private companies:

  • Identify specific criteria necessary for choosing an LCD location; and
  • Better understand the model and process for choosing an LCD location.
