Scandal-prone bean counter KPMG warned it could be banned from applying for Government contracts
KPMG could be banned from applying for Government contracts after a series of scandals.
The Big Four consultant was the third biggest winner of public contracts in the year to March after Deloitte and PwC, with £244million of work.
But in a letter to KPMG, the Cabinet Office warned of a ban if there is future misconduct.

It comes after a tribunal in October found KPMG lied about work it did for mattress firm Silentnight.
It was fined £13million by the Financial Reporting Council over the scandal. The letter outlined options, including a ban.
The Cabinet Office said: ‘We have been in contact with KPMG following the publication of the tribunal report.’
KPMG also featured in scandals at Carillion and Co-op Bank. Chief executive Jon Holt said he took the letter ‘very seriously’.
