Todd Grams, former chief of staff at the Internal Revenue Service, has joined Deloitte Federal Government Services and will work with agencies on initiatives in areas such as enterprise risk management and financial management.
Grams, also a former chief information officer and chief financial officer at the IRS, returned to the tax agency in June 2013 to start an enterprise risk management program after serving as chief financial officer at the Department of Veterans Affairs, Deloitte said Thursday.
“He was asked to rejoin the IRS as chief of staff at a critical time because of his depth of knowledge and meritorious work in government,” said Robert Penshorn, advisory practice leader at Deloitte Federal Government Services.
Penshorn added that Grams is recognized in the public and private sectors for his knowledge of enterprise risk management and financial management processes.
Grams led the IRS’ information technology modernization program as CIO and oversaw work to obtain the agency’s first-ever consecutive clean audit on its financial statements during his time as CFO.
His service at the VA includes six years as CFO at the Veterans Health Administration, where he led work to develop a new financing system that has been in use for 17 years.
He also started the VA’s first-ever enterprise risk management program, oversaw an initiative to reduce material weaknesses in financial management and integrated department-level support functions across information technology, finance, human resources and contracting.
Grams’ government career also includes senior roles in the Office of Management and Budget and the National Institute of Standards and Technology.
