Finance is in charge of carrying out all central agency duties and functions for the Government of Saskatchewan. The ministry is responsible for operating the treasury board, management and control of the province’s finances, developing economic and fiscal policies, and supporting the Government in being accountable to the public for use of funds.
Finance has used a few consultants over the years. Between 2012 and 2014, $474,841 was awarded to Karen Lys of KML Consulting to manage the ministry’s Hyperion data base project. The ministry also turned to KPMG for advice during this time. Just three services were used during 2013-2014 and 2012-2013:
- KML Consulting (IT, $474,841)
- KPMG Consulting (Management consulting, $51,517)
- KPMG LLP (Financial consulting and audit services, $493,857)
In the past, the Ministry turned to Marsh Canada Ltd for risk analysis ($60,000 in 2008-09) and the Conference Board of Canada for economic forecasting ($55,950 in 2008-2009). CGI figured highly during the last year of the NDP government ($444,042 in 2005-2006), but did not appear in the other years examined. In earlier years, the ministry had contracts with Oracle, the former employer of KML Consulting's Karen Lys.
