E&Y resigns from Scottish schools project
Ernst & Young is withdrawing from its role of adviser on a Scottish schools project over a potential conflict of interest.
Fife Council is about to appoint new financial advisers for the second phase of its Public Private Partnership £53m school building programme.
It is understood that some councillors raised objections because E&Y is auditor to Jarvis, one of the private sector bidders.
Unison, the public employee union claimed last year that the Big Four had advised the public sector on 45 PPP projects where there own clients had been involved in the bidding process.
