IRS Seeking Contractor Support for Federal Tax Information Security

The Internal Revenue Service‘s Office of Safeguards is looking for a contractor that can provide support services to ensure that other agencies are protecting federal tax information.

According to a request for information posted on SAM .gov, the contractor must perform preparatory agency outreach, pre-review analysis, automated and manual computer security scans, findings reporting and submission response. The vendor would also perform risk-based modeling to select agencies, provide computer security review methodology updates, conduct project and legislation assessments, perform stakeholder outreach and provide general IT expertise.

A request for proposals is expected to be issued in the first quarter of the fiscal year 2023.

The deadline for responses to the RFI is Aug. 12, FedScoop reported.

IRS said the contractor should be knowledgeable in the fields of cybersecurity and IT to be able to meet the needs of the Office of Safeguards, which ensures that over 300 government agencies protect the confidentiality of federal tax information and prevent unauthorized access to such data by identifying and mitigating risks.
