Lynsey Lauer


Lynsey has spent her career to date in complex (usually IT enabled) programme mobilisation and delivery, with experience of implementation in central Government, law enforcement, and across the criminal justice system. She is currently a Deputy Director at the Home Office, responsible for delivery of the Economic Crime Portfolio. In this role, she is the Programme Director for the GMPP Suspicious Activity Reporting Reform Programme (of money laundering and terrorist financing intelligence) which includes IT transformation, and staff uplifts in the National Crime Agency and policing to maximise the prevention of and disruption of criminality. The programme involves extensive stakeholder management across the private sector (e.g., banking, accountancy, and legal sectors) and with the c.75 law enforcement agencies who can access the intelligence.

Prior to joining the Home Office, Lynsey spent 15 years in consulting (Accenture and the Berkeley Partnership) where she helped to deliver a variety of large-scale public-sector transformation programmes.  These include: delivering the IT to support the introduction of a new welfare benefit (Employment Support Allowance which replaced Incapacity Benefit as part of £140m major programme) at the Department of Work and Pensions; mobilising a Video Enabled Justice programme to improve welfare and achieve operational efficiencies by increasing the use of video in the criminal justice system with a wide range of criminal justice partners; and leading the implementation of the Police Federation of England and Wales (PFEW) Independent Review, which transformed PFEW through organisational re-design, electoral reform, regulatory reform; the standardisation of finance policies, and equality and diversity improvements.
