The Cabinet Office has one person employed by McKinsey and Company. Mr Tim Kelsey leads on the Transparency agenda and is being paid for by the Cabinet Office at the equivalent rate of a director.

This is part of the Cabinet Office's strategy to bring in expertise from commercial and third sector organisations and the wider public sector but at civil service rates of pay, rather than consultancy rates.

McKinsey and Company have not seconded any other employees to the Cabinet Office since 6 May 2010.
