Thirty members of the government’s Council of Chief Information Officers (CIO Council) have joined National Computing Centre body CIO Connect to share IT strategies with the private sector.

The CIO Council is chaired by Ian Watmore, head of the Cabinet Office’s e-government unit, and consists of senior IT managers from across Whitehall and the wider public sector.

Watmore said, “Being able to plug into CIO Connect's network of senior IT professionals offers significant benefit to the CIO Council. There is great value in sharing knowledge and experiences with peers to help spread best practice and professionalism throughout public sector IT.”

Martin Bellamy, CIO of the Pension Service, said, “Many public sector organisations are currently undertaking change programmes to enhance both customer service and efficiency.

“Most of these initiatives are enabled by new IT, often on a scale comparable to the largest private sector projects. CIO Connect provides a valuable opportunity to share insights and experience with colleagues from the private sector."
