Accenture will redesign, develop and manage IRS.gov, the agency’s employee intranet and a user portal for tax preparers.
The IRS website handles more than 2 billion page views per year.
Accenture said its preliminary focus will be on IRS.gov’s design, architecture, infrastructure and operations.
Key components of the new site will include:
- Content management
