Internal affairs

Those looking for consulting work with the provincial government will continue to be disappointed. Earlier, we told you how ministries have been asked to keep their professional services contracts to a minimum and make every effort to have their work done in house. And, according to the Campbell administration's most recent human resource plan - which was distributed to civil servants on Thursday - the bureaucracy can expect "further efforts to reduce the use of consultants in favour of drawing on internal expertise."
