Purpose - The purpose of this paper is to provide a tool for decision makers to make more informed decisions regarding their outsourcing policies.

The paper presents a multi-phased decision model for strategic analysis of outsourcing such activities. Findings - The proposed decision model provides a comprehensive tool for effective decision making by considering economic as well as strategic factors. Practical implications - The procedure proposed here can help practitioners with their outsourcing decisions. The model presented is conceptual. Application and validation is still required. Originality/value - The paper describes a new decision model that considers both strategic and economic issues of outsourcing reverse logistics activities.
