Consulting fees can be a crisis when working for the government.  That’s because contracts are usually made public and are subject to criticism.  Few like the dollar-per-hour charges consulting firms have.  They don’t understand that overhead, salary and profit are worked into the billing amount.  They do have a point when juniors are elevated to sky high rates.  There are few young consultants who have a deep understanding of the challenges an organization faces. They lack experience for which there is no substitute.  Answers might seem right on the surface, but they can be wrong given the culture of an entity and its history.  Firms like McKinsey trade on their brand names and get away with higher billings, but they are going under a microscope.  They might not be able to do that for much longer in government contracts.  Critics will rejoice.
