JULY 24—The IRS last week awarded a $33.6 million, five-year contract to Accenture LLP and Qwest Communications International Inc. to revamp and host its Web site at www.irs.gov.

Accenture of Chicago will be the prime contractor, and Qwest of Denver will provide hosting services, said Gregory Carson, director of the Electronic Tax Administration and head of the service's electronic-commerce efforts.

The team, picked from three bidders, will start work next week. The contract has a base period of one year and four one-year options.

This is the first upgrade for the IRS site [see story, www.gcn.com/vol20_no20a/news/4705-1.html]. The service's plans, Carson said, call for making content easier to find and for adding new features and a faster search engine.
