Establish a plan to effectively manage changes in hiring volume. This plan should effectively manage those changes, including backfilling positions vacated from internal transfers, so that it does not adversely affect, to the extent practicable, the regular hiring in other IRS business units.

Improve communication channels across business units to mitigate the effects of large hiring surges. Specifically, the IRS should establish dedicated communication lines throughout the business units to ensure adequate prioritization and communication of hiring needs.
