ICF International announced today that it is part of the team led by Colleague Consulting, which was awarded a five-year Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) subcontract worth up to $US11 million with the U.S. Internal Revenue Service (IRS). The contractor team will work with the IRS to create a high-performance organization by assisting the department in identifying and addressing key organizational development issues, including workforce change management, transition assistance, strategic and operational planning assistance, conflict management assistance, and leadership coaching assistance.
"We look forward to supporting the performance of the IRS through improvements in strategy, change management, department coordination and communication, and departmental design," says Michael Cook of prime contractor, Colleague Consulting. "ICF’s training and professional development skills complement those of Colleague Consulting, ensuring that the team can effectively manage and advance the IRS’s organizational effectiveness."
