UK.gov taps up DWP's IT boss for all of Whitehall

The Register - Joe Harley has been appointed as UK.gov's new IT boss, the Cabinet Office confirmed today. He replaces John Suffolk, who resigned from his £207,000 Chief Information Officer post at the end of last year. Harley is the current Department for Work and Pensions CIO. From today, the government beefed up his portfolio - while presumably saving a few taxpayer pennies, too - by hiring him to take charge of Whitehall's overall IT strategy alongside his DWP job.
