Froelich to lead IRS unit

The Internal Revenue Service and the Treasury Department today unveiled management changes that will affect the agencies' implementation of the President's Management Agenda.

The Internal Revenue Service announced the appointment of Carl Froehlich as chief of Agency-Wide Shared Services. Treasury also named Jesus Delgado-Jenkins as the deputy assistant secretary for management and budget, a department spokeswoman said.

The IRS formed AWSS in 2000 as part of an overall agency reorganization. The program's duties include procurement and personnel support. It works with the information systems group to provide central management support to the IRS' major business units and all offices.

With Froehlich's move, Treasury named Mark Olechowski as the acting director of performance budgeting, according to the spokeswoman. Olechowski has been executive leader of the department's work under the President's Management Agenda since May 2003.

Froehlich comes to the IRS from the Treasury Department's Office of Performance Budgeting, where he was director. He led the Treasury's work on the Bush administration's performance-budget integration management initiative and was responsible for developing and implementing the Treasury strategic plan.

Delgado-Jenkins previously served as managing director of Bourbon Street Partners, LLC, a management and organizational consulting company. Before that he was a senior consultant and manager at what was then PriceWaterhouse, and held other positions in industry. He received a bachelors' of science in mechanical engineering aerospace from the US Military Academy at West Point, and a master's in business administration from the Kellogg Graduate School at Northwestern University with majors in strategy, finance and marketing.

Froehlich worked in the Navy for 24 years, leaving in 2000 as director of the Department of the Navy Business Reform. Before joining Treasury in 2002, he held several private-sector positions, including vice president of an information technology firm. He also was a consultant to the Navy. He received his master's degree in nuclear engineering and bachelor's degree in electrical engineering degrees from the Georgia Institute of Technology.
