NSW Roads and Maritime Services chief information officer Joe Attanasio is stepping down from his role after three years in the top IT seat to "pursue other career opportunities”.
Attanasio joined RMS in May 2013 following a four-year stint as the chief information and knowledge officer at the Australian Customs and Border Protection Service. He will leave RMS on November 16.
He also remodelled the IT function from a process-centric, internally-focused division to an outcomes-focused unit.
RMS is now advertising for a new CIO, with the incoming IT boss to be responsible for managing around 427 staff and an annual operational budget of $104 million and $13.8 million in capital expenditure.
The incoming CIO will oversee several ongoing projects, including the rollout of electronic messaging signs at key locations across the city's arterial road network, which will provide motorists with real-time traffic updates.
The agency has also begun implementing an electronic form that will integrate with a GP’s practice software to submit medical assessments for licence checks electronically to the RMS licence review unit.
Applications for the CIO role close November 13.
