IRS Awards Data Processing Contract to Company Involved in Massive Identity Theft

Irs_logo_108 The IRS has renewed a 5-year, $20 million contract with ChoicePoint to provide data processing services to the agency.  ChoicePoint is one of the companies caught up in the identity theft crisis, as it allowed thieves to steal confidential information on more than 100,000 of its customers.  Senator Patrick Leahy (D-VT) issued a press release yesterday blasting the IRS's move, calling it "especially galling right now to be rewarding firms that have been so careless with the public’s confidential information."
