Question description

Internal Revenue Service

PROJECT: Business Systems Modernization; Launched in 1999 to upgrade the agency’s IT infrastructure and more than 100 business applications.

WHAT HAPPENED? By assembling a star-studded team of vendors, the IRS thought its $8 billion modernization project would manage itself. The IRS thought wrong. As a result, the agency’s ability to collect revenue, conduct audits, and go after tax evaders was severely compromised. This case study illustrates what can go wrong when a complex project overwhelms the management capabilities of both vendor and client. Some consider it to be the most expensive systems development “fiasco” in history, with delays costing the U.S. Treasury tens of billions of dollars per year.
