The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has awarded Accenture Federal Services a 10-year contract to redesign, develop and manage three IRS portals. The work will consolidate the consumer-facing website, IRS.gov, the registered-user portal for tax preparers and the agency’s employee intranet.

Initial work will focus on design, infrastructure, architecture and operations of IRS.gov, one of the nation’s most trafficked websites with more than 2 billion page views each year. Work also includes content management, web search engine optimization, user analytics and site security.

Accenture’s federal business serves every cabinet-level department and 20 of the largest federal organizations. The U.S. federal portfolio spans across clients in civilian, defense, intelligence and public safety agencies.
