TIGTA: IRS Lacks Adequate Internal Controls in Spending $203m in Stimulus Funds

TIGTA The Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration today released Concerns About Contracting Officer’s Technical Representatives That Are Relevant to the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 Procurements (2010-11-087):

Procurements that are both awarded and planned by the IRS as part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 may be at risk due to inadequate oversight. ... The IRS received $203 million as part of the Recovery Act to reprogram its computer systems and to update tax forms, publications and customer services. As of April 2010, the IRS had initiated or was in the process of initiating 26 procurement actions on Recovery Act program initiatives with a total contract value of $81.9 million. Despite the influx of Recovery Act money, the IRS has not completed steps to improve contract oversight by its Contracting Officers' Technical Representatives, who administer the technical aspects of government contracts following their award.
