WASHINGTON: The Internal Revenue Service has renewed its contract with TMP Worldwide for another year.

WASHINGTON: The Internal Revenue Service has renewed its contract with TMP Worldwide for another year.

TMP signed a one-year contract with the IRS in 2010, with the option of four additional years. It has a capped budget of $14.8 million, said Terry Lemons, director of communications at the IRS. The contract has both advertising and strategic media components.

“We're a pretty wide-ranging agency. We have needs for IT professionals, people with extensive accounting backgrounds, people familiar with international tax issues, and other positions. We're also making a big push to bring veterans onboard and to diversify our workforce,” Lemons said. “This contract helps support [recruitment] efforts.”

The outreach initiative will be hyper-localized by region depending on needs of the federal agency, Lemons said.

TMP did not return a request for comment.

The IRS is reviewing submissions for a separate communications contract involving PR, advertising, and marketing projects, including a campaign to encourage voluntary tax compliance. Porter Novelli is the incumbent.
