Leidos Secures $65M IRS Systems Support Contract
The Internal Revenue Service has awarded its Paper and Remittance Processing Support III prime contract to Leidos, a Reston, Virginia-based company that provides science and technology solutions to a wide variety of clients.
The contract will allow Leidos to support the Integrated Submissions and Remittance Processing System and the Service Center Recognition Image Processing System, which digitizes tax filings and remittance tasks. PRPS III is a single-award, firm-fixed-price contract that has an estimated value of $65 million, Leidos said Tuesday.
The ISRP system is designed to capture, format and forward taxpayer-submitted, tax-related information and remittances while SCRIPS captures tax information for further processing by other IRS systems.
Work under the contract will include software engineering support, testing, quality assurance and hardware and software reinforcement activities across four IRS service centers. Leidos must ensure that the SCRIPS and ISPR solutions will operate interruption to digitize taxpayer-submitted data accurately.
“Through this contract, Leidos will optimize these critical systems and support their journey to greater efficiencies for the American taxpayer,” said Leidos Civil Group President Jim Moos.
The contract builds on a series of awards the IRS issued to the Reston-based company. In April 2020, the agency issued a potential 54-month, $69 million task order to Leidos to support its e-Services and Integrated Customer Communications Environment platforms. The company was tasked to provide software programming and updates to the software suites and support software and application development activities. The two platforms support the IRS’ modernization, cost reduction and tax processing missions.
Leidos has supported the annual filing season for the last 10 years.
