Public sector interim management records 'need improving'
Public sector organisations which use interim managers and consultants need to improve the way in which they record information on such workers.
This is according to a new report from the National Audit Office (NAO), which examined 17 central government departments and found many were unable to provide spending information on the number of interims they were using or the length of their contracts, reports Public Service.
Alan Leaman, chief executive officer of the Management Consultancies Association, said that public sector bodies need to have a stronger focus on delivering value for money.
"This will require a clearer distinction between consultancy and interim managers, who are often doing work that should be done by full-time employees," he stated.
According to recent research conducted on behalf of the Interim Management Association, there was a nine per cent increase in the appointment of such temporary specialists in the first six months of 2010.
