The Vatican hired two international firms to assess their communications and accounting procedures.
American consulting firm McKinsey & Company will analyze and propose a re-organization of the Vatican's newspaper, television and radio station to make them "more functional, efficient and modern.”
Meanwhile, Netherlands-based KPMG will work with the Vatican to "align the accounting procedures of all agencies of the Holy See with international standards."
