PwC scandal: Senate report calls for procurement overhaul

The Senate committee leading scrutiny of global consulting giant PwC has called on the firm to come clean about the tax leaks scandal and urged the government to tighten contracting across the board. But it stopped short of recommending a wider crackdown on the consulting sector that many were expecting.

The Senate’s Finance and Public Administration References Committee on Wednesday tabled its highly anticipated report on integrity in consulting services that was sparked by the tax leaks scandal.

It shows a split among committee members that have probed the scandal and the broader consulting sector for the past 14 months, with the Greens blasting the final report’s “inadequate” recommendations, while government members of the committee linked the scandal to the Coalition’s outsourcing of the public service.
