IRS Computer Update Contract goes to Accenture

I wonder if they will actually be able to deliver anything of any value to the IRS?

Throughout my career as an IT professional working alongside these Big-6 Accounting (and now IT Services) firms, they pile on junior consultants that bill, bill, bill with not much to show for it. Pretty PowerPoints, Lots of Project Plans, Strategy docs…

Changing systems in the IRS will take a jackhammer and bulldozer and those that “run the place” are usually the types that resist change.

Not hopeful…


What are the options? Self-managed with internal resources? A defense industry contractor? IBM? Huawei?
