The Argentine government is alleged to have worked with American consulting firm McKinsey to establish a regulatory framework for the ICT (information and communications technology) sector, according to Pagina12.com.
The government has denied the allegations, Director General of Legal Affairs Juan Manuel Mocoroa said. However, communications between the company and the government appears to have begun in March, costing the government 12.5 million pesos for 16 weeks of work.
The Minister of Communications Oscar Aguad initially said the contract was to draft a business plan for one of the agencies under his auspices, Argentina Enterprise Satellite Solutions SA (Arstat). However, Pagina12 contends that the work goes far beyond a business plan, and instead is a plan to strengthen Argentina’s entire ICT sector to make it more competitive.
