Tony Scott, former federal CIO and managing partner at Ridge-Lane Limited Partners, discusses the IRS’ technology modernization request for Congress and long-term modernization efforts elsewhere at federal agencies.


 The IRS recently rolled out their technology modernization request to Congress, a six-year plan costing nearly $3 billion. Tony Scott, former federal CIO and managing partner at Ridge-Lane Limited Partners, says there are challenges in trying to modernize for the long-term when agency leaders do not hold positions for extended periods of time.   “If you’re in there for a couple years, you’re going to do whatever you can do short term, and you are not necessarily invested in the long term. And you also have to have, in addition to a long-term view, you have to have a long-term funding model that makes sense. And as we have seen, over the last couple of decades the funding has been little bit crazy,” Scott said. “It is the lack of tenure. To solve that you have got to have some part of the institution in place that has longer institutional memory. And then you need also better baton passing between one administration and the next.”
