NEW/SCOOP: For the last 4 years, consulting firm McKinsey has helped restructure the spying bureaucracy, including NSA, ODNI, and CIA. But the multi-million $$ overhaul—awarded w/o competitive bidding—has hindered decision-making and left many demoralized. politico.com/story/2019/07/…
Employees are also wary of McKinsey’s reputation—the firm has come under scrutiny for its work with corruption-plagued governments in China, Saudi Arabia, Turkey and South Africa. It’s also worked with ICE, and last year was awarded a multi-million dollar contract with CBP.
