Taxpayer funds are paying for these offshored services. Thus, in policy terms, at issue is a procurement policy problem related to the qualifications of suppliers (who can get these contracts), and what are called "technical specifications" of the service for which a contract is offered (i.e., what terms are set for the service being sought).
