Excellence in Public Sector consulting

Razor gang to harrang Canberra

By S4anta - 13 February 2008 23

Much akin to fat Albert at a buffet, consultants to Government tend to absorb a large proportion of allocated revenue each year. Lindsay Tanner is releasing the audit crews and other winged monkeys at his disposal to overhaul $30 billion worth of new contracts signed by the Government each year, according to the Aussie.

The review aims to strip billions of dollars from the taxpayers’ bill by leveraging government purchasing power, eliminating duplication and stopping agencies competing with each other for resources. Research is apprarently already under way for the project, which will parallel the two-stage razor gang process already announced; immediate cuts for this year’s budget, followed by a second-stage review later this year.

Time to retire consultants, cash in those novated leases and move to Barlings Beach.
