Institute for Government appoints Senior Fellow for new Treasury project

The Institute for Government is delighted to announce that Martin Wheatley will become a Senior Fellow from 30 April 2018. He will be taking on responsibility for developing a project on the operation of the Treasury, including examining its role in the management of public finances and spending. 

A leading independent think tank, the Institute for Government works to promote better government by focusing on how it is led, how it works and how it is scrutinised. Since its start in 2008, the Institute has made a significant impact in policy making and civil service reform, and recently in preparations for Brexit. It has helped put the quality of government decision making and performance on the agenda.

Martin Wheatley has 30 years’ experience in public service change and policy-making, including working at the Cabinet Office, Treasury and Local Government Association.

Martin Wheatley said:

“I am looking forward to be joining the Institute for Government to work on the Treasury and financial management in Whitehall. The Treasury plays a crucial role at the centre of government and I am delighted to have the opportunity to build on the Institute’s existing work in this area.”

Bronwen Maddox said:

“We are delighted that Martin will take this role overseeing our work on the Treasury. He brings tremendous experience and insight and will help us take this work forward as the Government grapples with how best to manage public finances and expenditure.”
