American Management Systems Inc. has bolstered its government electronic commerce initiative with the hiring of six industry experts under AMS vice president William Kilmartin.

Four of the additions formerly worked with Mr. Kilmartin in Massachusetts, where he was the commonwealth's comptroller. They worked together on a multistate "e-mall" project that was touted as revolutionizing the state government purchasing function.

"The business of government will fundamentally change in the coming years, with the possibilities of the Internet moving into all facets of life and business," Mr. Kilmartin said. "By leveraging AMS' knowledge and experience in the public sector, this team powerfully positions AMS" to help clients "take full advantage of the emerging digital economy."

The former Massachusetts people on the AMS team are Gary Lambert, who was deputy state purchasing agent; Tim Landy, technical director for the central procurement department and the e-mall project; Raymond L. McCabe, a comptroller's department official who coordinated the Northeast Consortium electronic benefits transfer program; and John Munies, who worked for several Massachusetts agencies and was most recently deputy assistant vice chancellor for finance and information technology at the University of Massachusetts Medical School.

Also moving to AMS are James L. McCarthy, executive vice president of Star System Inc., the largest regional automated teller machine network, and Matt Pavone, an expert in data warehousing and business intelligence systems who was a consultant to the Massachusetts Comptroller's Office.
