Public Sector Outsourcing and Nunavut: GlobeTalk with Avasant

October, 2010

This episode of GlobeTalk with Avasant was focused on how innovation in the technology services industry is impacting the public sector. In the first half hour, we explored the issue of technology outsourcing at the state and local government level. Ravi Mahalingam, Avasant’s General Counsel, provided insights on developing issues and trends in public sector outsourcing. In the second half hour, we travelled to the North Pole to Nunavut, the youngest and largest Canadian province which stretches into and above the Arctic Circle. We looked at how this province is attempting to modernize its telecommunications network in a geographically challenging environment to provide services to a dispersed population. Amit Singh, a partner of Avasant was our guest and travel guide to introduce us to this unique place.
