IRS names modernization chief

The IRS has appointed Fred L. Forman as the associate commissioner of Business Systems Modernization.

Forman will be in charge of the agency's 15-year, multi-billion-dollar business and technology modernization project.

'Fred Forman brings a unique set of leadership skills and talents to Business Systems Modernization,' said CIO John Reece. 'This is a crucial time for the program as the IRS starts moving from planning and development to tackle this challenging assignment.'

For the last nine months, Forman has served as the executive program adviser to the modernization program.

Before joining the IRS, he was the executive vice president at American Management Systems Inc. of Fairfax, Va., where he also worked as the chief technology officer for many years.

Forman holds master's and doctorate degrees in physics from the University of Pennsylvania and a bachelor's in physics from Case Western Reserve University.
