Danny Werfel, former acting Internal Revenue Service chief, believes the IRS’ current leadership can handle the agency’s mission and budgetary challenges, Federal News Radio reported Monday.
“I think they’re moving forward in the right direction,” Werfel told the radio station in an interview.
He held the interim IRS commissioner role from spring 2013 until the appointment of John Koskinen in December as full-time agency head.
Werfel said he is confident “the right leadership team is in place, that we did a good job laying the foundation for reform, improvement and restoring the public’s trust, that John has kind of grabbed that baton and will help move the agency forward.”
Werfel, now a director at Boston Consulting Group‘s public sector practice, intends to continue working with the federal government to help agencies implement management strategies.
