External bleeding

Earlier, we reported government ministries have been asked to keep their professional services contracts to a minimum and make every effort to have their work done in house. That's not great news for capital city consultants. And here's some more: according to an article for the June edition of Canadian Government Executive magazine by public service initiative writer/researcher Karoline Piercy civil servants have suggested a number of public policy improvements via the government's intranet, including "establishing an internal talent bank to reduce the need for external contractors."

But, a whole new system would be needed for rewarding Liberal party insiders,

I recently heard one story about a personal service contractor who runs a quasi government agency. Somehow, the management contract cost so much, the agency had to squeeze its small service providers because funds weren't available to pay high rewards to insiders and actually deliver the intended programs.
