Surrey CC are in the news again for spending £430,000 on consultants since April compared to £305,000 for full year 2015-16.  Quite recently a TV documentary revealed the practice of reward contracts to give consultants a share of such as efficiency savings identified and presumably realised. Whether or not Surrey does this the practice is highly questionable when consultants often develop findings and recommendations by listening to staff and executives.
