    Abstract

    This paper investigates contracting out activities carried out by a Fijian Government Commercial Company, Airports Fiji Limited. It provides case based evidence of situations where contracting out or outsourcing activity does not work. The paper argues that ill thought-out contracting out activity can not benefit a public enterprise despite the promises of Public Enterprise Reforms. It also argues that hostile contracting out endeavours are detrimental to public enterprises.
