Tendering and in-house development are not interchangeable, but they are
interlinked. Keep in mind that the in-house devs would participate in
running tenders.

Another valuable role for an in-house developer would be to manage a more
long-term relationship with specialist subcontractors, for example a
company with expertise in accessibility development. With a longer-term
expert subcontractor, TDF could then actually develop new capabilities
rather than simply fix bugs and stand still like AOO. By adding to our list
of approaches a managed but non-employee longer-term relationship with
outside firms that is not limited to a single task, TDF would be able to
both benefit from the flexibility of tendering and also gain the benefit of
long-term staffing.

It was an excellent idea to make the document editable, thanks Kendy, so I
have added some words to this effect. Feel free to improve them!
