Who We Are

CEM's work touches the lives of nearly every American—from taxpayers to small firms to veterans and their families. We are helping federal agencies evolve how they do business with the public.

MITRE has long served as a key partner to help government adopt technology to meet mission needs. Today's greater challenge involves rethinking business models, taking on new mission responsibilities, and evolving management and governance approaches. The CEM FFRDC—sponsored by the Department of the Treasury and the Internal Revenue Service and co-sponsored by the Department of Veterans Affairs—helps government agencies take on this challenge.

CEM collaborates with agencies and their stakeholders to transform the way they do business for the American public. As large and complex systems for revenue, tax, and benefits administration programs change, these agencies must maintain oversight of the work they do, stay within budget, and deliver effective solutions. This is particularly important when integrating new and existing systems into a seamless whole.

Our IRS sponsor permits other federal agencies to engage CEM as well. This allows us to share what we've learned across the civilian government enterprise to improve how agencies deliver services to the public. We also provide guidance to agencies such as:
