Rob Minicozzi, vice president of applications development at Arrow Electronics, said the firm successfully outsources some application development and maintenance work, but had a major disagreement over terminology with one, unnamed offshore vendor.

Arrow's IT staff was seeing obvious software bugs in the outsourcer's code, Minicozzi recalled, but the contractor didn't want to classify them as "defects," which led to questions about who should pay for the problems.Minicozzi investigated and found out that the offshore programmers were compensated based on the amount of defect-free code they produced, so there was a disincentive call anything a defect!

Minicozzi met with the contractor to fix the problem, but the episode had tarnished the vendor's reputation with the IT staff.

Just goes to show that even a very savvy IT operation -- with a vendor management office -- can run into unforeseen problems.Details matter!
