Public spending on external consultancies, particularly within the health sector, is highly controversial in many countries. Yet, despite the apparently large sums of money involved, there has been little international analysis surrounding the scope of activities of consultants, meaning there is little understanding of how much is spent, for what purpose and with what result. This talk outlines the findings of a project looking at the cost and activities of consultants in New Zealand’s District Health Boards, the policies behind their engagement and the processes in place to ensure value for money.
