Big Four Fiscal 2013 Advisory Practice Rankings and Conflict Risk Metrics
Monadnock Research (Vol VII, No 2) - 18 Feb 2014
Global non-audit advisory services of Big Four firms, including tax services, increased to $64.73 billion (USD) in fiscal 2013, a 5.47% increase over 2012. Total non-tax advisory services of Deloitte, KPMG, PricewaterhouseCoopers and Ernst & Young were $38.54 billion, an increase of 6.8% over fiscal 2012. Overall, Big Four fiscal 2013 growth was only about half that of last year in most categories. That growth in advisory, however, contrasts sharply with an overall increase of 3.15% for the Big Four across all service areas, and just 0.25% growth in audit services. KPMG's audit revenues actually declined for a second year by around 1%, now joined by PwC whose Audit revenues decreased by 0.7 percent. This is the fourth edition of Monadnock Research's published analysis of the Big Four's consulting practices, as they continue to seek organic growth and strategic M&A, with a special focus on non-audit services. This Research Note highlights the growing risks of the ever-increasing proportion of advisory relative to audit services at Big Four firms. It also explores the paradox faced by Big Four leaders that have made strategic decisions to trade conflict risk for more profitable advisory work, and the hazards posed by those decisions to the firms themselves, and to clients, financial markets, investors and the consulting services marketplace.

Negotiating Blended Rates for Consulting Services
Monadnock Research (Vol VII, No 1) - 4 Feb 2014
Blended rates are sometimes offered by providers of consulting services, or negotiated by sourcing and procurement professionals, to help simplify billing and payment processes. While blended rates may eliminate a lot of detail and dramatically simplify administrative aspects, negotiating the right blended rate is anything but simple. In most cases we recommend that clients avoid blended rates entirely. But if the organization has made a decision to go with them, there are factors to consider in negotiating competitive rates for master service agreements (MSAs) and project-specific statements of work (SOW). This Research Note details our 6-step process to simplify analysis and help clients negotiate better deals with strategic firm partners. (2,150 words, one graphic) . . . More

Deloitte Fiscal 2013 Consulting Growth Outpaces Audit Revenue Increases by Over 900 Percent
Monadnock Research (Vol VI, No 50) - 17 Sept 2013
Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu Limited (Deloitte) member firm revenues grew by 3.5% to $32.4 billion (USD) for the firm's fiscal 2013 ended 31 May. Globally, growth was primarily driven by increases in consulting and expansion of the US member firm. A stronger dollar toward the end of Deloitte's fiscal year muted apparent growth to some degree in US dollar terms, since growth in local currency was 5.6% firm-wide. Worldwide consulting revenues were $10.4 billion, up by 7.22% in dollar terms and 8.7% in local currency terms, in Deloitte's fiscal 2013. The firm's consulting business also increased as a percentage of total services to around 32.1% from 31%, and Deloitte's financial advisory business grew by 3.7% to $2.8 billion. Financial advisory also increased moderately as a percentage of Deloitte's total business to 8.642% from 8.626%. Deloitte's core Audit and Enterprise Risk Services (Audit) business grew by 0.77% to $13.1 billion, with Audit continuing to slip as a percentage of total service revenues to around 40.43% from 41.53%. The firm's Tax and Legal services business grew by 3.39% to $6.1 billion, but also slipped as an overall percentage of Deloitte's global revenues by 0.016% to 8.642%.

The Consulting Classification Test: Is it Consulting, or Something Else Entirely?
Monadnock Research (Vol VI, No 45) - 17 July 2013
Characteristics that distinguish independent consulting from work that is best addressed by internal resources or temporary labor are usually clear, but in practice the ultimate classification of work performed that is labeled "consulting" often differs significantly from any reasonable definition. Monadnock Research defines consulting simply as "independent objective advice", and whether it's referred-to as "consulting" or "advisory" services, the same definition applies. We find, however, that this definition is an over-simplification. So we have developed a framework for testing whether an engagement or relationship with a firm fits the definition of consulting, and justifies consulting-level rates. Associated characteristics include objectivity, independence, project orientation, specialized expertise and temporary nature of the work required to address the organizational need. This Research Note includes details on the Consulting Classification Test, including analysis of Navigant's relationship with the Long Island Power Authority (LIPA), and a copy of the Moreland Commission's report that includes details on Navigant's rates and total consulting expenditures of LIPA's 65+ professional services vendors between 2008 and 2012.
