Ex-Gov't CIO favours publishing Gateway Reviews - OGC says no

Ian Watmore, the former Government CIO who became an adviser to the Prime Minister and then permanent secretary of DIUS, has agreed with MP Richard Bacon that gateway reviews should be published. Trouble is, Watmore has now left the civil service to become Chief Executive of the Football Association.

Will the Office of Government Commerce, which runs gateway reviews, listen to Watmore? It says no. [Does it listen to anyone who advocates more openness?] 

More Ian Watmores in government please.
