JUNE 19—Stephen H. Holden, IRS Electronic Tax Administration modernization program executive, will leave the agency in August to serve as an assistant professor at the University of Maryland-Baltimore County information systems department beginning with the 2000 fall semester.

Holden also will research and publish information systems management and policy studies.

'I will be focusing on digital government and electronic-government initiatives in the private and public sectors,' he said.

The move to academia ends his 16-year stint with the federal government, which he started as a presidential management intern at the Naval Sea Systems Command in 1983.

Holden served for 10 years at the Office of Management and Budget conducting policy, management and budget analyses before joining the IRS in 1994.

He led work with the IRS Prime contractor, Computer Sciences Corp., which received the modernization contract in 1998. The modernization, among other goals, aims to fulfill a congressional mandate to process 80 percent of all tax returns electronically by 2007.
