In this paper we present an econometric model to determine whether the probability of outsourcing of a SME (small and medium sized enterprise) depends on his level of innovation and information and communication technology use. The predictions of the econometric model are tested by means of a LOGIT model using a cross section sample of Argentinean SME for the year 2006. The model predicts that the level of innovation of a SME will significantly influence its probability of outsourcing. Besides, we analyze the incidence of other variables as the information and communication technologies (ICT) use and the export activity on the outsourcing decision.
