Chief Operating Officer, Fraud, Error Debt and Grants Executive Director, ERG
Cabinet Office (Confirmed)
Lesley Hume joined the civil service 2008 as Director of the Government IT Profession. To encompass her previous experience as an IT Director and CIO for global Oil and Gas organisation, the role very quickly broadened to include the role of CIO for the Cabinet Office. Lesley’s primary objective at the Cabinet Office was to bring two major IT programmes back on track and deliver the final stages of the programmes. This created the opportunity for significant involvement of the ICT Moratorium and Crown Commercial negotiations during the change of administration. Lesley initially joined ERG as a member of the Change Board and laterally as responsible for successfully setting up the Flexible Resourcing and Development area. Lesley now heads up the newly formed Fraud, Error and Debt team responsible for pursuing a programme of work to reduce existing losses and prevent future losses. Lesley continues with her ICT professional tether by supporting the crown Representatives as CIO lead for a number of key ICT suppliers.
