Scope creep - other than this everything else, purely depends on the relationship with the vendor. Fortunately, I have very good partners in all our vendors.

I would say security - it’s easy to find functional developers across the globe, but outsourcing can sometimes drastically change the way you implement application security after the fact due to other issues like scope creep and timelines when managing an outsourced effort like this.
