In the first quarter of 2008, Shell contracted to outsource the provision of its IT Infrastructure and Telecommunication services in 3 service bundles: Network and Telecommunications, End User Computing Services including desktop, back-up and disaster recovery, and Hosting and Storage.

The legal work needed was immense and in this article I will describe a few steps that helped us in building the legal framework and contracts needed for this multi-billion outsourcing project.
