Consultant’s rates for UW project raise eyebrows (11:04 a.m. 7/16/09)

Madison (AP) — Four employees of a consulting firm billed more than $200,000 apiece in five months for work on a University of Wisconsin System information technology project.

Another 10 employees of Chicago-based Huron Consulting Group charged $100,000 or more for services on the project to install a new payroll system.

The Associated Press reviewed invoices for the company’s work from January through May. Most employees are charging $192 per hour or more, with top officials charging $342.

A past president of the Association of Information Technology Professionals said he and other IT workers with whom he spoke this week are “just shocked” at the rates.

System officials said the firm is providing valuable expertise on a critical project, and its rates are competitive with other proposals it received.
