PAC Reports on External Consultancy Spend

Session: 2011/2012

Date: Thursday, 19 April 2012

The Public Accounts Committee has returned to the issue of public sector use of external consultants in a report published today. The original report, published in February 2008, recommended a number of improvements for the Department of Finance and Personnel (DFP)

Today’s report shows that, while there has been a significant reduction in external consultancy expenditure and improvement in compliance with DFP guidance and good practice, there are still many examples of poor practice across the public sector.
