7.30 Report: An investigation into the billions of taxpayer funds going to the big four consulting firms

A 7.30 investigation by Adele Ferguson reveals billions of dollars in taxpayer funds have gone to the big four consulting firms and it's often hard to know exactly what that money has bought.

The organisations are the systems and processes and they have now dictated what the government looks like. That we need to unpick. And we need to do it if we're to get back any sense of democracy in our state."
