IRS names Babers chief human capital officer

The IRS today selected Beverly Ortega Babers to be its chief human capital officer, a new position under John Dalrymple, deputy commissioner for operations support.

The Homeland Security Act of 2002 required that executive departments and agencies appoint a chief human capital officer.

'The chief human capital officer serves as an integral part of senior leadership,' an IRS spokesman said.

The CHCO advises the IRS commissioner on work force development policy and ways to find the most productive employees for the right job in their agency based on merit system principles, the spokesman said.

Babers, who joined the IRS in 1999, is now the director of technical services in the IRS Appeal Division, overseeing tax policy and procedure, technical guidance and processing services functions within the division.

Before coming to the IRS, Babers was chief of staff and counsel to the Justice Department's assistant attorney general of the tax division, where she made recommendations for appellate and litigation strategy and oversaw administrative functions.

Babers is a 1989 graduate of the Boalt Hall School of Law, University of California at Berkeley.
