There is scarcity of research to investigate not-for-profit sector outsourcing decisions. K-12 school foodservices are not-for-profit operations, and non-core (non-academic) school functions, making them an ideal context to contribute to this literature. We propose a generic framework to investigate K-12 foodservice outsourcing decisions based on the transactional, cost-benefit view of outsourcing. In addition, this paper lays out an agenda for future research.
