Funds for Better Use
Consider adopting a multiyear, comprehensive Examination Strategic Plan that addresses all workstreams from all divisions to rank them by risk and priority that can be used to guide resource allocation. In addition, the plan should contain specific and measurable performance goals or expected outcomes to help measure progress.
Establish a documented annual enterprise-wide examination planning process that aligns with the multiyear, comprehensive Examination Strategic Plan.
Establish a process to use Tax Gap data annually to identify opportunities to better align resources that more effectively narrow the net Tax Gap.
Develop a tool to consider risk and other relevant variables to inform examination resource allocation decisions, then expand its use to include Examination workstreams from all divisions.
