Louise Tarpy

Louise Tarpy

HMRC, Head of External Software Integration

A HMRC ‘lifer’ Louise’s progression through the ranks has seen her undertake a wide variety of roles from debt collection, to guidance writer, to subject matter expert. Her first experience of third-party software was while working on the RTI Programme, where delivery of the solution was, almost, wholly reliant on commercial software providers. In Mar 17, Louise moved to HMRC’s Chief Digital Information Office (CDIO) where she created the Digital Relationship Management (DRM) function from scratch. DRM are a team of dedicated account managers who work alongside the long-established Software Developer Support Team (SDST). Whereas SDST’s role is to provide operational and technical support to developers, DRM are responsible for growing long-term, collaborative relationships; getting to know the organisation, their products and their business drivers. Together, SDST and DRM make up External Software Integration (formerly Software Developer Collaboration). In Apr 19, Louise was appointed Head of External Software Integration, meaning she is now responsible for both functions.

Louise is driven by a fundamental need to change things for the better. She is passionate about providing the best possible service, to ensure the needs of our mutual customers are met. She is also a keen advocate for accessible and inclusive software and believes that by putting the user at the heart of the design, we can deliver better quality products and services for all. Above all, Louise recognises that the developer’s success is HMRC’s success.
