InSysCo will provide the IRS with data delivery services, including the CADE-2 — the electronic tax processing program the agency uses and updates daily.


Acentia, who owns InSysCo, said the contract will change the IRS into what it calls a “data centric” organization, with new databases and networks. Acentia said in addition to the five-year contract, it already assists the IRS with software development and modernization.

The award marks the fifth TIPSS-4 contract award of 2014, with previous contracts devoted to cyber security and programming.
