Response to External Security Consultants Inquiry

As part of the State Services Commission's Inquiry into the Use of External Security Consultants, State services agencies were asked to provide information on their use of external security consultants. In support of the inquiry's report, the PCO is publishing the information provided by the PCO Director Corporate Services to the inquiry on 17 August 2018:

"While I have been at the PCO, we have never used any firm of this sort to undertake the services as outlined in the letter. And I started in my current position with the organisation in July 2008. 

"Given the nature of our organisation, it is difficult to conceive of a time when the PCO would have needed or would need to acquire the security services as detailed in the letter."
