Revenue & Customs set for huge consulting bill

Management consultants charging HMRC £1,000 a day

HM Revenue & Customs is hiring £1,000-a-day management consultants to
carry out IT tasks for its new IT department, Information Management Solutions.

As many as 80 outside consultants have been hired by the taxman, according to
a report in the Sunday Telegraph.

The consultants are being hired as business analysts and are carrying out
work alongside in-house Revenue staff working at a rate of £120-a-day.

The paper claims the high-costs are a result of measures implemented under
the Gershon review, undertaken to cut civil servant costs.

An insider told the paper that many of the consultants were hired from PA
Consulting, although many are apparently freelance consultants.

HMRC refused to confirm or deny the whistleblower’s claims.
