MeriTalk- GAO Report Highlights Persistent IRS IT Woes

“The Government Accountability Office on Thursday released the findings of a review of the Internal Revenue Service’s major IT investments, citing well-known shortcomings in the tax collection agency’s aging technology infrastructure and recommending steps to make better use of the billions IRS spends on IT each year.”

“GAO – the Federal government’s premiere watchdog organization – looked at nine IRS IT projects in both the development phase and those in the operations and maintenance phase, through fiscal years 2016 and 2017.”

“Among five currently operational programs reviewed by GAO, three were notably criticized for their IT-related shortcomings.”

“IRS did not agree or disagree with the recommendations, but said it would provide a plan for addressing each recommendation,” GAO said.” Read the full article here.
