a term used to indicate when work is outside of one’s formal areas of responsibility and so must be completed without any additional resources, as in “I’m on the reorganization project all day so this work on the Thailand proposal is out of hide”; may also imply that one will not be receiving credit or reward for one’s efforts, although the motives for out of hide work are rarely selfless; the phrase is used in U.S. defense contracting, in which a program that is out of hide must take funding out of existing budgets
