IRS Offers First Look at $2.6B Contract Touching All Its IT Systems
The IRS is building a $2.6 billion IT support contract with the potential to touch every major tax system managed by the U.S. government.
The agency released a request for information for the new Enterprise Development, Operations Services, or EDOS, contract, which will cover development of new IT systems and services, as well as ongoing operations and maintenance of existing systems.
“The IRS is seeking contractor support to provide a full range of development and associated services necessary to plan, coordinate and execute technical and management approaches in alignment with requirements and scheduling demands for the [Application Development Office’s] delivery partners and other business stakeholders,” according to the draft performance work statement.
The contract has the potential to cover every IT application—and, in turn, every service provided by the agency—including those that don’t exist yet.
“The contractor will provide services to support current tax code applications and build new processes that do not exist in tax administration today,” according to the PWS.
