Accenture and Qwest will redo IRS' Web site

The IRS last week awarded Accenture LLP and Qwest Communications International Inc. a $33.6 million, five-year contract to revamp and host the service's Web site, at www.irs.gov.

Accenture, a Chicago consulting firm, 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 IRS' electronic-commerce efforts.

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

This is the first upgrade for the IRS site [GCN, July 23, Page 1]. The service's plans, Carson said, call for making content easier to find and adding new features and a faster search engine.
