The IRS awarded General Dynamics Corp. a $23 million contract to provide systems support for the Software Development Life Cycle project for its tax administration applications.
General Dynamics will provide support such as individual programming activities and project management efforts. The contract duration is five years and has a value of $23 million if the IRS exercises all options.
General Dynamics develops the software that 26,000 revenue agents use to process returns, said Carlo Uchello, director of civilian programs at General Dynamics Information Technology.
"Our program is the 'brain' of the campus batch processing mechanism allowing the IRS to process millions of returns (and billions of dollars of revenue) without a large amount of human intervention," he said..
The vendor and team member Sentel Corp., which provides support and maintenance to the IRS' Report Generation Software system, will support the Software Development Life Cycle project at Sentel offices in Dallas.
