EY Shouldn’t Be Awarded Any New U.K. Government Contracts For Three Years Because EY Is Bad, Says Some Group

“Banning [EY] for three years from UK public contracts would send an incredibly powerful message that the government will not give public contracts to companies that engage in misconduct … and do not get their house in order.”

Spotlight on Corruption, an anti-corruption campaign group based in the U.K., wrote in a recent letter to the Crown Procurement Service, asking it to examine if government business should be awarded to EY in the future.

The SoC called on the government to prevent EY from being able to bid on U.K. government contracts for three years—basically because of EY’s propensity for shitty auditing, thus leading to scandals that have rocked companies like Luckin Coffee, Wirecard, and NMC Health.
