1.2.62.1  (12-13-2011)
Introduction

  1. This IRM contains the Division/Function delegation orders issued by the Chief Technology Officer (CTO) to the Modernization and Information Technology Services (MITS) organization. The CTO has delegated to the lowest level allowed within the organization. Every intervening line supervisory position has the same authority. Therefore, it is not necessary to do cascading re-delegations to lower the authority.

  2. The format and numbering are consistent with guidance from Servicewide Policy, Directives and Electronic Research (SPDER). For example, delegation order number MITS-1-3-1 shows -

    • MITS: the organization issuing the redelegation order

    • 1-3: the associated Service-wide delegation order

    • 1: a sequential number to indicate that more than one redelegation can be issued for each Service-wide delegation order.

  3. The delegation orders are also available on the MITS Publications Management (PM) website at http://mits.web.irs.gov/PublicationsMgmt/Directives/DirectivesDelegationOrders.htm

  4. Questions about current MITS delegation orders, including revisions or issuance of new delegation orders should be directed to the *MITS Directives Management Office mailbox
