John Suffolk, Government CIO, to leave – a blow to major reform?

By Tony Collins
John Suffolk has decided to leave his post as Government CIO by the end of this year, a departure that will be seen by some as a setback to the campaign for major cuts in wasteful IT-based spending in the public sector.
Suffolk confirmed his departure to me on 15 November: “Just under five years is a good stint …time to pass the baton on and give the new Government a clear run on new policies, new strategies and new people. Its been truly great working with Francis Maude. His agenda is my agenda and reverse. He will drive it [major reform] forward.”
