The US Treasury Department, Washington DC

McLean, Va., and Bedford, Mass., Oct. 10, 2018—The MITRE Corporation announced that The U.S. Department of the Treasury has renewed its contract through 2023 to operate the Center for Enterprise Modernization (CEM), a federally funded research and development center (FFRDC).

Under the agreement, CEM acts as a decision partner, integrator, innovation partner and systems engineer to meet mission-critical needs of the Treasury, including the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), through fact-based, data-driven analysis and decision support. CEM supports Treasury goals including boosting economic growth, promoting financial stability, and achieving operational excellence.

"MITRE is pleased after an extensive comprehensive review period to have been selected as a mission partner for the Treasury and its bureaus for the next five years," said Beth Meinert, vice president and director for MITRE's Center for Enterprise Modernization – Financial and Economic Transformation. "We look forward to working with them to solve the complex problems being faced across the organization."

The conflict-free FFRDC model lets the IRS use private sector resources to accomplish mission-integral tasks through the greater use of new technology, efficiency, and effectiveness through new, more agile business models and information technology management.

CEM, one of seven federally funded R&D centers operated by MITRE, and the IRS seek to meet taxpayers' real-time expectations by innovating business processes and integrating new technologies into existing systems.
