PHONE 327-3536 Government waste: Ottawa hires outside consultants while own help sitting around By VIC PARSONS OTTAWA (CP) While some employees in an ever- expanding federal public ser- vice are idle through lack of work, the government is pay- ing out millions of dollars each year in consulting and special fees. And although much of the million set aside in the 1973-74 main spending es- timates for outside help pays for services the government cannot or will not provide, a considerable portion duplicates work that could be done by full-time workers. The million, up from million in the previous fiscal year, comes out of an estimated expenditure of billion for 1973-74. It pays for special outside legal fees and charges made by engineers, analysts, com- puter specialists, accountants and other "professional and expert contracted cleaning services and health care expenses. Some of the money is just transferred from one depart- ment to another when one agency provides services to another. While this money is paid out in increasing amounts, the public service continues to grow. In September, 1973, there were nearly employees in departments and departmental cor- increase of five per cent in a year. STORIES ABOUND Stories of waste and dupli- cation abound, public servants report, and hiring outside help often leads to friction between permanent hands and those contracted. Often contract workers are paid more than regular public servants who are doing similar work. Yet full-time staff sometimes are besieged for information by consultants who know less about govern- ment operations and policies than the regulars, some public servants complain. One instance cited in the last auditor-general's report involved the 1973 post office calendar. An advertising agency was asked to produce one million 28-page calendars at an es- timated cost of The post office ended up with 000 24-page calendars at a total cost of including in federal sales tax. But post office employees had to rewrite material sub- mitted by the agency because it was unsatisfactory and the government paid the full amount in advance even though there was no require- ment for immediate payment. This event appears only to be the tip of an iceberg of in- efficient use of staff and con- sultants if random conversa- tions with public servants are a guage. "We hired an ad agency in Toronto to write copy for a quarterly one of the government's 750 informa- tion officers said recently. "When it came back it was so horrible we had to rewrite every word." And a contracted employee who found herself preparing a report for another department wondered why she had been hired. "There were five or six peo- ple in the section I'm working for who were walking about complaining that they had nothing to do. Quite frankly, they all knew more about the subject of my report than I did." Some of her co-workers were jealous because she had steady work and had been assigned a project they wanted, she added. Hard feelings and lower public service morale have been two side-effects of con- sultant hiring. When one department hired a public relations firm to prepare publicity for an ex- hibition, a senior information officer almost quit in anger. "There are people here who can do the work as well as anyone in the company. I have as much experience as the people they took on. I don't know why they went outside. "They sent a public relations woman from Toronto to Europe to prepare for the exhibition while we were all left behind to do the dirty work.

Canada unity pushed VICTORIA (CP) British Columbia will be selling Cana- dian unity and no doubt pushing for nationalization of all energy resources in Canada at next week's federal-provincial energy conference. The province's interest in unity was stressed earlier this week by Attorney-General Alex Macdonald, who said Premier Dave Barrett is ex- tremely concerned about the matter. "There are wounds of Con- federation that have to be bound is the way Mr. Macdonald put it. The theme of nationaliza- tion of all energy resources in Canada is a favoriate one with the province's New Democratic Party govern- ment and likely to be voiced at the two-day conference which begins Tuesday in Ottawa. Mr. Barrett said last November that B.C. was prepared to cede all of its energy resources to the federal viding Ottawa nationalized re- sources across Canada. In October, he told the B.C. legislature, "I take the posi- tion that in this sovereign nation, if we are to keep Confederation alive, we have reached the point in time and awareness where the basis of a national energy policy should be the complete public nationally of all natural gas and oil resources in this country." The premier and Mr. Macdonald, the government's energy spokesman, have often complained of a lack of a national energy policy and it was this feeling that prompted the premier to call in November for a federal- provincial conference to for- mulate such a policy. Mr. Barrett said such a con- ference is necessary during the international energy crisis in order that Ottawa and the provinces issue a joint state- ment on the goals and methods of on energy conser- vation, production and dis- tribution.
