Taxpayers money squandered on consultants

“THE city council has revealed it has spent £69,000 on a firm of consultants to improve the authority’s culture and performance.

The company, Invigor8, was commissioned by the council last year.

The authority says the firm has been brought in to give the council more focus, help develop a culture in which its vision can be realised, and create a “shared understanding” of what it is trying to achieve.

The Evening Post recently revealed the council previously spent £30,000 on a study from Hardmoor Associates into the council’s culture.”

Over at Indymedia it is claimed that “The City Council squanders £15 million on private consultants.”

I know many City Council employees who work with consultants are scandalised at the amount of money Nottingham City Council spend on consultants.
