With the amount of money Deloitte Consulting has been paid by the state in recent years, some might consider it deserving to be a state agency in its own right.
During the last five years, state records show Deloitte Consulting, which opened an office in Susquehanna Twp. three years ago, has been paid nearly $414 million. With the contracts Deloitte still holds, the company is on track to approach or exceed the half-billion mark soon.
The international firm, with U.S. headquarters in New York City, provides audit, tax, consulting and financial advisory services. Most of its contracts with the state have been primarily for services related to information technology.
…… Treasury records show Deloitte’s contracts over the last five years dwarf the state’s $27.7 million payments to a competitor, Accenture.
