Management consultants who work for and with the various orders of government in Canada are no longer as invisible as they once were. Other authors have increasingly been writing about this policy and management actor and the media and the general public are also beginning to better understand the influence that management consultants have on how decisions are made in government. A question that remains is how much control and influence do management consultants have with government and administrative actors and if the private service is indeed stepping over any democratic boundaries.
