Before the 8 June General Election, Rob Greig, Director of the Parliamentary Digital Service (PDS), announced that he would be leaving in September 2017 to become Group CIO (Chief Information Officer) at Arup.
Edward Ollard, Clerk of the Parliaments, and David Natzler, the Clerk of the House of Commons, said:
“We would like to thank Rob for all that he has done since his arrival in 2015. The Digital Strategy that he developed and is delivering has begun the transformation of Parliament’s digital infrastructure and services. He has made dramatic improvements in our cyber security and business systems, and begun the vital work of rebuilding Parliament’s website, all during a time of rapid change in PDS. His achievements and his leadership were most visibly displayed just last month during the cyber-attack. We wish Rob every possible success in his new role.”
The process of recruiting a permanent Director will start in 2018.
The Parliamentary Digital Service is a joint service providing information and communications technology services and training for both Houses of Parliament. It provides the infrastructure for the Parliamentary Network, manages the provision of IT equipment to both Members and House staff, and supports digital services and projects.
