WASHINGTON — The Internal Revenue Service announced today the appointment of Carl T. Froehlich to head Agency-Wide Shared Services. AWSS develops procedures and implements policy for the IRS’s internal real estate and facilities management, EEO and Diversity, personnel, procurement and customer support activities.
“Carl brings a wide range of expertise to lead an important part of the IRS,” said IRS Commissioner Mark W. Everson. “AWSS provides the internal support needed to help the IRS fulfill its tax administration mission.”
Froehlich comes to the IRS from the Department of the Treasury, where he was the Director of the Office of Performance Budgeting. Previously, he had been the Director of Strategic Planning and Evaluation, which later merged with the Budget Office to create the Office of Performance Budgeting.
While at Treasury, Froehlich led the department’s effort toward performance budget formulation. He led initiatives to formally link program financial execution, program performance and program budget development. He also was responsible for developing and implementing the department’s strategic plan.
Prior to joining Treasury in 2002, Froehlich was technical director of a consulting firm doing business with the Department of the Navy. Froehlich has also held the position of vice president of an information technology firm.
In June 2000, Froehlich completed 24 years of Navy service. His last active duty position was as Director, Department of the Navy Business Reform, on the staff of the Chief of Naval Operation.
Froehlich received his Master’s of Science in Nuclear Engineering and Bachelor’s of Science in Electrical Engineering degrees from the Georgia Institute of Technology.
