To ask the Secretary of State for Defence, how many external consultants are involved in defence procurement.

Answered on

11 November 2014

The Ministry of Defence (MOD) does not hold details of the number of consultants employed on defence procurement activities. This is because the MOD negotiates contracts with consultancy companies to deliver a specific output at an agreed price; the number of consultants to be employed is not specified, since this is a matter for the contractor.
