The Internal Revenue Service has improved its hiring time according to a report by the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration.
When investigators checked in 2009, some IRS offices were taking five months to hire new personnel. Now, most offices are close to meeting the agency goal of taking no longer than 80 days to get new hires. The IRS reported it hired about 19,000 people in 2011.
One of the most drastic improvements has been in the IRS Information Technology organization, which was taking seven months to bring new people aboard. Now that wait time has been cut down to 90 days, investigators said.
