Spending on Consultants: Good Spend Management?

Is significantly increasing spending on consultants to help reduce costs good Spend Management practice? Perhaps in the short-term. Supply Management, a UK-based publication, has an interesting article this month which notes that "the [UK] Office of Government Commerce has nearly doubled its spend on consultants in the past year in order to help local and central government departments become leaner. And more than a quarter of its efficiency team's budget is spent paying consultants and interim managers responsible for driving efficiency and achieving procurement savings."
