报告内容摘要

Project outsourcing has been a pronounced trend in   many industries but is also recognized as a major cause for project delays. We   study how companies can coordinate outsourced projects with uncertain   completion times through bilateral contract negotiations. Misaligned   subcontractor incentives may result in substantial losses to both project   clients and subcontractors. Coordinating subcontractors' efforts through   proper contracts is imperative to the success of project outsourcing.

Most previous studies on project contracting have   not addressed subcontractors' bargaining powers or the dynamic bargaining   process in negotiations. We fill in this gap by studying bilateral bargaining   between the client and subcontractors, which better reflects real-world   negotiations. Our study uncovers how the coordination of project outsourcing   is impacted by the contract form, bargaining power structure, precedence   network topology, payment timing, external opportunities, and negotiation   protocols. For single-task projects, the widely used fixed-price (cost-plus)   contract can achieve system coordination only when the subcontractor (client)   possesses full bargaining power. Cost-sharing and time-based incentive   contracts, which perform well for single-task projects, may not be effective   for projects with parallel tasks when any subcontractor's bargaining power is   sufficiently high.

Projects with serial tasks can be coordinated only   under certain extreme bargaining power structures. Delaying payments always   exacerbates the incentive misalignment.
