Further to my letter of 20th January 2022, I have now completed my review of the response to your request under the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 (FOISA) for consultancy fees – Energy Directorate only.

You asked for the amount paid in fees to the following companies in the fiscal years 2016/17, 2017/18, 2018/2019, 2019/20 and 2020/21 by project, naming and giving the purpose of each project.

  • Deloitte
  • Teneo

  • Ernst & Young
  • KPMG
  • PwC
  • BDO
  • Johnston Carmichael

I have concluded that the original decision should be confirmed with modifications. The information provided has now been displayed in the format you requested with analysis of expenditure split by year and by project, including a description of the purpose of each project where this information is not already publicly available on the Scottish Government portal. This information is included in Annex A.
