    Impact sourcing (ImS) has been identified as an emergent component of Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) which relates to the practice of developing IT skills for marginalised communities. Also known as socially responsible outsourcing, the core element of ImS is to train and employ people from disadvantaged background in expediting socioeconomic development. While the positive influence of ImS has been significantly noticed in countries such as India, Kenya and Nepal, there has not been any appropriate initiatives noticed in one of the most promising nations, Bangladesh. With adequate IT and telecommunication foundation followed by strong governmental support, Bangladesh has the potential to flourish in ImS sector and make significant socioeconomic development for its people. This research in progress paper proposes a conceptual framework to understand the perceived antecedents for adopting ImS undertakings in Bangladesh and provide valuable insight to the government and researchers/practitioners for employing effective ICT based social development strategies.
