CW500: HMRC CIO Phil Pavitt, on IT transformationDate: Apr 02, 2012
HM Revenue & Customs has one of the largest IT estates in the public sector, spending hundreds of million pounds every year on the technology that gathers the tax income that funds the UK. But like every area of government, HMRC is facing huge challenges to cut costs and be more efficient.
CIO Phil Pavitt introduced a new strategy that aims to reduce the IT budget by £161m – a target he is well on the way to achieving. In this CW500 video, Pavitt talks to Computer Weekly editor in chief Bryan Glick about HMRC’s IT Transformation Programme and the benefits it is delivering for every taxpayer in the UK.
