IRS Office of Safeguards Out-of-Cycle Reviews
DEAR COLLEAGUE LETTER
DATE: September 26, 2016
TO: ALL STATE IV-D DIRECTORS
RE: IRS Office of Safeguards Out-of-Cycle Reviews
The IRS Office of Safeguards recently began conducting out-of-cycle reviews of certain agencies it identified to have one or more crucial issues that could pose risks related to compliance of safeguarding federal tax information.
To determine which agencies may have potentially high-risk issues, the Office of Safeguards is looking at several different factors captured in its reports case management system, including the timeliness of the state’s Corrective Action Plan and Safeguard Security Report responses and remediation of certain findings by the IRS’s targeted closure date.
In collaboration with OCSE, the Office of Safeguards will provide a teleconference briefing in the near future to discuss this new process in more detail. We will send the date and dial-in information once it is known.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions.
