IRS names new CIO, makes other management moves

The IRS yesterday announced changes within its management that will affect its modernization efforts and IT operations.

Commissioner Mark W. Everson named W. Todd Grams the agency's CIO, according to a press release.

Grams moved over from his post as the chief financial officer to replace John Reece, who left IRS in February after two years at the helm of the agency's modernization.

Grams began work for the IRS in February 2001, and under his leadership the agency received its first-ever clean financial opinion from the General Accounting Office. He previously worked for the Veterans Affairs Department and Office of Management and Budget.

Grams also will get a new boss, John Dalrymple, who was named deputy commissioner for operations support. Dalrymple will oversee the agency's CFO, chief human capital officer and Agencywide Shared Services offices, as well as IT and physical security operations.

Dalrymple has worked at IRS since 1975 at various posts, including chief operations officer. He will move to his new post from his position as commissioner of the Wage and Investment Division.
