Brief Executive Summary
The House Committee on Oversight and Government investigated the Internal Revenue Service's contracting process for IT acquisition. The Committee found the President and CEO of Strong Castle, Inc had a close relationship with IRS Deputy Director for IT Acquisition Greg Roseman which may have led to the company being awarded contracts worth more than $500 million. This relationship allowed for Strong Castle to receive acquisition information earlier than their competitors, resulting in rapid growth for the company. The committee found weaknesses in the Internal Revenue Service contracting process exposing billions of taxpayer dollars to fraud and abuse.
