The remit of the new position covers information strategy and technology, and Lamey will inherit the Revenue’s strategic partnership with IT outsourcer Capgemini.

He follows in the footsteps of several high-profile public sector IT appointments from industry.

Former management consultant, Richard Granger, took charge of the £2.3bn IT modernisation programme for the NHS in 2002, and Accenture chief Ian Watmore was recently appointed head of e-government.

ICI Paints COO Joe Harley also took responsibility for the DWP’s £3bn IT programme earlier this year.

A spokesman for the Revenue could not yet confirm when Lamey will start his new job.
