Customers > U.S. IRS Business Systems Modernization

BizRules.com selected by IBM to be the business rules Subject Matter Expert (SME) on the IRS PRIME CADE Systems Modernization Project

Served as IBM’s Business Rules SME and Business Rules Architect on the largest civilian systems modernization plan in history, the 15-year $10 billion IRS PRIME Business Systems Modernization Project.

Business Problem

IRS PRIME is a 15-year $10 billion Business Systems Modernization Project to modernize all Internal Revenue Service applications. Analysts say this is the largest civilian systems development project in the world.

The main objective of this project is to take the IRS tax agency from a paper-pushing system to an interactive online program for taxpayers. Among the goals are to deliver tax refunds in as little as two days instead of five weeks, enable taxpayers to receive e-mail messages from the IRS about their returns and track the status of refunds online, and enable IRS Business Analysts/SMEs (non-programmers) to author and modify business rules without reprogramming or recompiling. The CADE Project (Customer Account Data Engine) is one of the first and key pieces of the entire program: It will convert all Individual and Business Taxpayer Master Files from tape to DB2. All 250,000 IRS Business Rules for processing Individual Tax Returns will be stored in a rule engine instead of being hard-coded. Phase 1 will process 1040-EZ tax returns for the 2002 filing season.

Business Solution

BizRules.com helped design the Business Rules architecture, methodology, and strategy for harvesting and programming the 250,000 IRS business rules that process all Individual Taxpayer tax returns.

Our BIZRULES® VISION™ Business Rules Methodology is being used as the foundation for the new IRS Business Rule Harvesting Methodology.

Provided expertise in Business Rules technology, design, and industry best practices on the IBM CADE Team. Also provided expertise in rule harvesting, rule discovery, rule modeling, and rule authoring.

BIZRULES helped IBM design the rule engine portion of IBM’s RFP Proposal, which won the bid for the IRS PRIME CADE project.
