Deloitte to start review of structure

The decision by Deloitte & Touche to abandon the split from its consulting arm has prompted an organisational review that will decide the fate of a second consulting unit within the firm.

In a u-turn last month, Deloitte decided it would defy the established trend among Big Four firms to split consulting and audit branches.

As Deloitte Consulting has remained with the firm, it now has to decide what to do with its internal consulting business, Deloitte & Touche Management Solutions, which last year merged with Andersen Business Consulting when Andersen became part of the firm.

Accountancy Age has learned that Deloitte has created a global task force to look at a new structure and evaluate how the internal consulting arm can fit with the general business. Among the options to be considered are the integration of some of its functions into Deloitte Consulting.

A spokesman for the firm said: ‘What will happen to the internal consulting business has not been decided yet. There are different options. But the decision will be made quite quickly, within the near future.’
