Harnett responds to capability review

HMRC acting chairman Dave Hartnett has altered the department's senior management structure, in reaction to the findings of the recent cabinet office capability review.

He said the shake-up was an effort 'put in place the structure that will enable work to start in the first quarter of this year'.

Moves include Alicia O'Neill, previously of the PAYE improvement project, to lead the capability review implementation plan and the planning of changes to improve organisational shape.

This area will become part of the wider HMRC change programme led by Steve Lamey, alongside the recently formed performance management team led by Alison McDonald and the departmental transformation programme led by John Keelty.

David Richardson will take responsibility for charity, assets and residence, with Peter Michael assuming responsibility for central policy on an acting basis.

Within the next few weeks, Mary Aiston will take up the newly created post of director of governance and security to handle responsibility for corporate governance, internal governance and security and business continuity.

Mr Hartnett also said that there will be a strong focus over the coming weeks on the his office to support the directorate changes being put in place, the final reports from the reviews under way, and establishing trust with customers.
