Bert Concklin is leaving his job as head of the Internal Revenue Service's Business Systems Modernization Office

Bert Concklin is leaving his job as head of the Internal Revenue Service's Business Systems Modernization Office, the tax agency said last week. He was appointed in June 2000 and has been credited with moving the program from an idea on a drawing board to completion of its enterprise architecture.

Concklin, who plans to leave in September, has not announced his plans. For the next three months, he will work with John Reece, the new IRS deputy commissioner for modernization and chief information officer. The IRS said Reece will take on the job as temporary head of BSMO until a replacement for Concklin is hired.
