Return to in-house development, but have they the skills to deliver?
Recently Kristian Miller, Head of IT Strategy at HMRC, announced their long-term vision of how the department intends to use technology for delivering better services to its customers.  The next 5 years represent a critical time for HMRC as it transitions from its 10-year Aspire contract, which is one of the biggest IT contracts ever signed by the UK government.  The end of the Aspire contract is part of the wider Government strategy to move away from large outsourcing models to develop more in-house capability and open up the public sector tech market.
