General Note The Department's response appears in Appendix 1 of the report.
Summary Note "No participating agency materially complied with procurement requirements when engaging consultancy services. Eight participating agencies under-reported consultant fees in their annual reports. The NSW Procurement Board is not fully effective in overseeing and supporting agencies' procurement of consultancy services." - p. 2. "The Department of Education (DoE) spent $96 million on Accenture in 2012–13, the highest spend on a single supplier in a reporting year across all participating agencies. The majority of its spend related to the build process of the software platform for the Learning Management and Business Reform Program." - p. 6. "In 2016–17, the NSW Government recorded over $327 million as consultancy operating expenses in the Total State Sector Accounts - an increase of 83 per cent since 2012–13. The number does not include the consultancy spend capitalised as part of asset costs. In our 2017 Auditor-General's Report on State Finances, for example, we reported that the NSW Government spent $298 million over the past five years on consultants specifically in relation to the sale or lease of State assets." - p. 8.
