The revelation came amid calls from the Liberal Democrats for the full disclosure of government documents linked to Andersen and the other large accountancy firms.
Andersen sponsored the Treasury run PFI conference in 1999, two years after the firm had been removed from a blacklist preventing it from pitching for government business.
Matthew Taylor, Lib Dem spokesman on the Treasury, said the sponsorship clearly broke Cabinet Office guidelines which state ‘sponsorship should not be sought or accepted from firms which are involved in significant commercial negotiations with the host Department (whether or not linked to the event), or which may be affected by the exercise of that department’s regulatory or licensing work’.
The Liberal Democrats demanded full disclosure of Andersen’s work for the government, and a review of sponsorship procedures.
