Spending on consultants in Advanced Education is relatively marginal. Of the years examined, the ministry spent the most on consultants in 2008-2009, at $533,711. In 2005-2006, advanced education was not a ministry, and expenses were folded in with K-12 education spending.
The three years examined showed progressively less spending in each. Over the past two available years, 2012-13 and 2013-14, spending included:
- Insightrix (Saskatoon, market research, $237,239)
- Probe Research (Winnipeg, market research and polling, $135,214)
- Bell, Browne, Molar & Delicate Consulting (Ottawa, business management, $55,306).
