Siemens IT Solutions and Services has appointed a Head of Government Affairs to champion and develop relationships with central and local Government partners and trade associations. Steven Barker will take this ambassadorial role and lead engagements with public sector working groups concerned with standards in procurement, emergent and changing ICT strategies, plus the identification of innovative products, services and solutions.

Steven Barker has been with Siemens IT Solutions and Services working on environmental sustainability portfolio development and in a strategic planning role since 2008. Before this he was at the Home Office within the IT Shared Services group. He previously held roles at IND (now UKBA) and also with HMSO. Steve has also worked in the private sector in procurement and product management roles.

Clark MacFarlane, Managing Director at Siemens IT Solutions and Services UK, said, “Siemens is a long-standing partner to the UK public sector and the appointment of Steven Barker to Head of Government Affairs will ensure continued proactive discussion and delivery of new ideas and innovations to support central and local Government. ICT innovations and Business Process Outsourcing offer the potential to improve service delivery, save costs and support the drive for more open engagement with citizens.”

The announcement of the Head of Government Affairs role follows the recent signing of Siemens IT Solutions and Services’ Memorandum of Understanding with the Cabinet Office to deliver significant savings to HM Government as part of the Efficiency Reform Group’s (ERG) deficit reduction programme.
