Show Notes
Michael Tull (CPSU) discusses the first ever national audit of consultancy fees. Whilst we continually hear of budget cutbacks in order to achieve surplus, the insiders are making a surplus of their very own. Tune in to this rocky road of privatisations, delivering less for much more. It’s all part of our topsy turvy world eh?

“Procurement’ is up 42% from $33bn to $47bn in just nine years. 69.1% of the value of total procurement contracts were undertaken by the Dept of Defence.
