The Big Four consultant was the third-largest winner of public contracts in the year to March, behind Deloitte and PwC, with works worth £244 million.

But in a letter to KPMG, the Cabinet Office warned of imposing sanctions on future malpractices.

In October a tribunal found that KPMG had lied about the work it had done for mattress firm Silentnite.

The scandal was fined £13 million by the Financial Reporting Council. The letter outlines options including restrictions.

The Cabinet Office said: ‘We have been in touch with KPMG since the publication of the Tribunal report.’

KPMG is also involved in scandals at Carillion and Co-op Bank. Chief executive John Holt said he took the letter ‘very seriously’.
