Improving Assurance over ICT in Government


I attended an interesting presentation at lunchtime today. The presenter was  Alison Schulze the recently appointed Director of ICT Assurance at Department of Internal Affairs. Ms Schulze reports via Tim Occleshaw, Deputy Chief Executive –  Service and System Transformation, Government Chief Technology Officer  to Colin MacDonald, DIA CEO and Government Chief Information Officer. The remit of Ms Schulze is across government and not confined to just DIA.  

Initial indications from the session today are that government is, at long last, making serious efforts to get to grips with the issue of assurance based on a business perspective, not just an IT one. However, it is as stated today very much work in progress.

I hope to be able to write in more detail on this in the near future.
