How many auditors are being contracted to do this and how much will it cost per day?
How many days will it take?
What is the total cost to carry out the whole audit?
There are no audits being carried out on Government departments to identify efficiencies and no auditors have been contracted to work on this activity.
Ernst and Young are providing specific consultancy services. It is estimated that up to £1.44m will be paid to Ernst and Young for this work, subject to meeting certain performance criteria. This investment has contributed to the delivery of efficiencies in 2019 / 2020 and the development of the Efficiencies Plan 2020-2023 (R.130 / 2019) to deliver £40m of efficiencies across Government in 2020, including working with departments on related objectives.
