AIS have played a major role in the successful delivery of the MI Programme at the Department of Transport (DfT). The team have just won the prestigious ‘Innovation in Government’ Award for 2013 for the Government Finance Profession. The MI Programme has met its key goals of delivering accurate, streamlined data and reporting structures across the DfT family which has enabled the alignment of HR and Finance. It has also delivered a ‘closed loop’ planning process that enables Strategic Planning, Budgeting, Forecasting and Estimate to Treasury to be aligned in one cyclic process. Congratulations all round.
