Explanation:
From the context it would appear that the appropriate English term here is: to sub-contract on a cost-plus basis.
Other possibilities are:
"Regie-opdracht" = engagement under the principal's management;
"Werken op regiebasis" = to operate on a cost-plus basis;
"Werken onder regie uitvoeren" = cost-plus contracts [overall direction and financial commitments rest on the principal].

to contract out


Explanation:
<jarry> gives very good background. However, since they are talking about software training, it is not production, which can be contracted on a cost-plus basis. Here it seems to simply mean contracting out the training to an outside company.

Explanation:
could be an alternative here.

I would tend to disagree with "words", however, on the use of contract out, which has a meaning similar to "opt out". The Oxford Dictionary accordingly defines "contract in or out" as: choose to be involved in (or withdraw or remain out of) a scheme or commitment. This seems to be a case of source language interference ("uitbesteden"). My Van Dale does not list the translation suggested by "words".
