The UK government is seeking the services of business consultants to help it to navigate the process of separating Britain from the European Union, according to a new report.

Last weekend's Financial Times on Sunday reported that the government's Department for Exiting the European Union has issued a tender to the private sector for a firm that can provide advice and consultancy on the Brexit process.

Headed by Brexit secretary David Davis, the department has been tasked with formulating a clear strategy for navigating Britain's exit from the EU, with some 729 potential plans already submitted from various areas of government.

As a result, Mr Davis is reportedly looking to the services of expert business consultants to advise on the best possible approach to take to help untangle the country from the EU with minimal risk and disruption.

It is thought that Mr Davis' department is offering £1.5 million to consultancy firms for a six-month contract to help advise on some of the finer points of the reality of the Brexit process.

The chosen consultant would also be expected to provide advice on some of the more challenging aspects of Brexit, such as how the UK's agricultural policies should be managed going forward.

It has been reported that organisations including Deloitte, EY, KPMG and PwC are all interested in the Brexit consulting contract, but the government is yet to confirm whether this is indeed the case. PA Consulting's name has also been mentioned in connection with the tender.

In a statement to the Financial Times, the Department for Exiting the European Union said: "We cannot comment on specific procurement, but as you would expect the department continues to develop its systems to deliver a smooth and orderly exit from the EU.

"We will continue to ensure the department is properly resourced to do that, including contracting specialist expertise where necessary."
