The audit giant agreed to temporarily stop seeking public sector work last December, after it was threatened with a ban.

But it has since bagged 22 UK public sector contracts – including an estimated £3m chunk of a £21m NHS England contract. 

Figures supplied by data provider Tussell to the Financial Times showed it had also signed deals to advise four government departments. 

KPMG said it had agreed with the Cabinet Office to ‘continue with tenders already in progress or new work where it was in the public interest’. 

It said the number of contracts was ‘very small’.
