Merging from External Files

Hi All,
I've just had a rather alarming conversation with my boss about a
particular scenario regarding our SVN repositories.
Basically we have a third party organisation doing some outsourced
development on a project I am just in the process of wrapping up. I
have a direct link to my SVN repos and once code is
written/tested/approved I perform a commit and send the code to the
repo. I'm just about to complete this current phase of dev work and
will then hand over day to day dev to the outsourcer.
I've just found out that they have already been working on an old
version of my code from 'a few months ago' also completely outside of
our source control SVN repos.
Great ...
How on earth am I going to deal with this scenario? Is there any way to
reliably merge these files with what is inside our SVN server? Or is
this just a completely lost cause?
