Super-Ministry’s super spending revealed – NZ Herald

A major leak of internal financial information from the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment has revealed the super-Ministry’s increasing reliance on recruitment firms — and sparked a hunt for the whistleblower.

The data — leaked from internal MBIE financial reports by an anonymous source claiming to be concerned about “waste” — covers more than $250 million in payments to more than 2000 individual contractors, and $54m in payments to consulting firms, over the past four years.
