To ask the Secretary of State for Social Security in how many of his Department's PFI contracts KPMG has been an adviser. [132858]

Mr. Rooker

The Department has two PFI projects; PRIME (Private Sector Resource Initiative for Management of the Estate) and ACCORD (Access to Corporate Data).

KPMG are providing input into the Network and Office Services project (NOSP) strand of the ACCORD programme. The NOSP stand is at the Invitation to Tender stage and is not yet a formal contract. Charterhouse are providing overall strategic direction across the ACCORD Outsourcing, CSR and NOSP strands.

KPMG have not provided advice to the PRIME project.
