Maybe Timo Noetzel would not have boasted in retrospect, but at the end of last year, the advisors of the management company Accenture, the Intranet should be applied very thick. He praises for its "strong relationships" to serve in the army and that he got to be "Team pure" in the Ministry of defence.

Finally, it reported the "mirror", he writes: "The potential is huge, that the Bundeswehr is a diamond customer."
a suspected breach of the law, references to nepotism
Now, the potential is especially huge, that Noetzel is a further key figure in the consultant affair. It is the responsibility of defence Minister Ursula von der Leyen, for consultant contracts in the amount of hundreds of millions of euros, the suspected breach of the law and instructions on nepotism.
in order To investigate the incident, the investigation Committee of the Bundestag wants to subpoena now Noetzel. The among the groups agreed and the first 15 people comprehensive witness list, which the daily mirror.

Thus, the focus will be expanded to the elucidation of the adviser, affair, increasingly, from McKinsey to Accenture, The global company, the management consulting and technology services should be commissioned on the competition in the past. Can be made via framework agreements and sub-contractor. In addition, Accenture will have Noetzel fee hours for 25,000 Euro double billed.
Noetzel worked briefly for the Berliner protection of the Constitution and the Munich security conference and was one of the 2013 election campaign team of the then SPD Chancellor candidate Peer Steinbrück. Today, the SPD brings him, especially with an incapacitated and dependent on the military administration. "The complex Accenture/Noetzel, we expect to be able to the formation and effect of such dependencies, most clearly, to analyze," said SPD defense expert Fritz Felgentreu, the daily mirror. "Here also the question of political responsibility is then in the room that must be cleared up."The young Accenture consultants Timo Noetzel has a steep career path.Photo: University of Konstanz
in addition to the Accenture consultants Noetzel, the defence of politicians, the former defense state Secretary and former McKinsey consultant, and Katrin Suder on the list. She was, in a sense, the trigger for the investigative Committee, because of the close Confidants of Leyen had declared himself only ready to stand to the defence Committee, in writing, to answer questions, but not personally. To do this, you can now be forced, in the Committee of inquiry.
"For consultants such as Timo Noetzel and Katrin Suder is a carpenter, the work in our Committee was anything other than a ride to the weekend," says the defence spokeswoman of the FDP parliamentary group, Marie-Agnes Strack -. It should be clarified how the Ministry of "a Juggernaut" with an independent consultant system with additional sub-advisors have been able to transform. "We will increasingly alongside McKinsey also Accenture under the magnifying glass. At the end, also heads could roll. Because if the tenders were not correct, the procurement law has been bypassed, it can also have legal consequences.“

Suder had the McKinsey colleagues as an armor officer brought into the house to work with him to a new project management for defense projects. Leyens target, which, in turn, had set Suder personally, it was to fix the problems, there are always back in defence procurement: The Material is too expensive, too late and makes less than the agreed amount.
a special importance for the ever-expanding consultant affair also has the summons of Lieutenant-General Erhard Bühler.
