So over half of the money for the PPARS system was spent on Deloitte consultants. And what have we got to show for it? Either the civil servants are incompetent or Deloitte were taking the proverbial.
The Irish Times understands that Deloitte received €40 million in consultancy fees over recent years for the PPARs payroll and staff records system and a separate €18.12 million for work on the FISP financial information system project.
The board of the HSE, as expected, decided yesterday to put on hold plans to expand the PPARs systems beyond the four locations where it is in use.
