Better systems for taxpayers. Slager is an IT specialist in name, but that role covers a wide range of duties, including budget management, presentations to executives and procurement oversight, all while working under tight budget constraints. In 2016, he led a successful migration of more than 1,000 users to a more modernized portal that now encrypts traffic, enables multifactor authentication and promises to save money. In addition, Slager worked with Unisys to develop a plan to upgrade old hardware in time for tax-filing season without affecting IRS customers.
