n. A concept similar to outsourcing, but differs in that a company hires individuals who are currently resident in the company's country; particularly pertains to the American use of the IRS W-9 (W-Nine) Contractorform, hence the name. Such a concept allows work to be performed under de facto minimum wage, and can result in less-than-optimal services.
I have a feeling that the guy I talked to about setting up my Internet service was a product of ninesourcing... he totally didn't know what he was talking about and told me to plug the Ethernet cord right into the DSL modem's phone jack!
