McLean, VA – Booz Allen Hamilton (NYSE: BAH) today announced that it was awarded a position on the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) Enterprise Development, Operations Services (EDOS) contract, a Blanket Purchase Agreement (BPA) with a ceiling value of $2.6 billion. The multiple-award BPA has a seven-year period of performance.
The IRS’s information technology teams work to deliver IT services and solutions that drive effective tax administration. The transformational EDOS contract supports the IRS’s applications development portfolio to modernize mission-critical applications efficiently and cost-effectively, while implementing annual tax season legislative requirements. EDOS is designed for task orders that will support the filing season and the agency’s legislatively mandated modernization goals.
“EDOS is an exciting milestone in a period of transformation for the IRS to reimagine the taxpayer experience,” said Richard Crowe, Booz Allen’s Civil sector president. “We look forward to the opportunity to apply our decades of experience in powering data-enabled missions as we enhance the way the IRS serves the public by modernizing legacy systems, building up and leveraging data and analytics, and delivering cutting-edge technology to operate more effectively.”
With this contract, Booz Allen builds upon an established track record of more than 25 years as a strategic mission partner supporting the IRS. Booz Allen applies a deep understanding of the complexities of maintaining a portfolio of more than 400 systems and balancing tax filing season deadlines against decommissioning, consolidation, and re-platforming to reduce the agency’s legacy IT footprint, while building new systems to support the ever-changing demands of all citizens.
“Meeting the demands of today’s digital citizen requires expertise in modernization, operations and maintenance with complex systems across the federal government,” said Paul Tartaglione, a senior vice president in Booz Allen’s Civil business. “Our deep mission understanding—coupled with our proven track record of applying artificial intelligence, machine learning and cybersecurity to federal missions—enables us to play a pivotal role in enhancing the functionality and efficiency of IRS’ systems. Booz Allen is committed to supporting IRS’ modernization and tax administration efforts for years to come.”
