looks like KPMG are getting up the inside to win work in the future by bidding £1 for multi-million contracts.

is your firm doing similar / able to do this?

we're all doomed, captain mainwaring to freebie (#1)

this is one of the behaviours that helps ratchet down rates in every recession, making consulting an ever more commoditised and price-sensitive trade..

KPMG Partner to Www (#3)

I prefer to pay salaries to my consultants for working for hugely-valuable clients and building the firm's brand equity and experience, than sitting around using facebook in the office, waiting to be staffed on projects. Not to mention the "underground benefits" I enjoy that my front-line pawns will never find out about...

Bob to KPMG Partner (#4)

Some interesting dynamics come into play:

Customer: "Why have you staffed this engagement with your most rubbish people?"

KPMG: "Beggars can't be choosers. Stop whinging, you're not paying for any of this anyway."

Customer: "If you don't fix x, y and z we're not going to pay you."

KPMG: "Do I look bovvered? Guys, let's take the rest of the afternoon off. Meet you down the pub."

I wonder if they apply the VAT increase when they invoice for this.
