Treasury Tax IG: IRS Should Create IT Skills List, Evaluation Process

The chief technology officer at the Internal Revenue Service should create both an inventory of key skills needed in the agency’s information technology workforce and a process for evaluating those skills, a Treasury Department audit says.

In its 19-page report, the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration said the agency’s IT organization uses a process that relies on management knowledge and judgment of each individual’s skills.

That process does not take into account resource needs for other mission-related work, the TIGTA said in the report.

Auditors did not find a system in the IRS’ IT organization that provides information about the skills and competencies associated with IT occupations, adding management needs such a database to evaluate the skills.

In another IT-related audit released in April, TIGTA found nearly a third of the tax agency’s servers go unchecked for threats.
