Compliance with Internal Revenue Service (IRS) Publication 1075

June 26, 2022

Compliance with Internal whitepaper
The United States Internal Revenue Service’s (IRS) goal is to promote taxpayer confidence in the integrity of the tax system by ensuring confidentiality of the tax information provided to the federal, state and local agencies. The IRS 1075 publication provides guidance to agencies, agents, contractors and subcontractors on implementing adequate policies,  processes, controls and safeguards to protect Federal tax information (FTI).

The IRS 1075 requirements follow the FedRAMP and NIST 800-53 Rev.5 guidelines. Agencies that receive FTI must ensure that they have adequate programs in place to protect the data received in line with IRS 1075 guidelines. VMware Cloud on AWS GovCloud (US) has been authorized against the FedRAMP High baseline controls and therefore can support agencies in meeting the IRS 1075 requirements.

Recommendations on Updating the National Artificial Intelligence Research and Development Strategic Plan

whitePaper | March 16, 2022

A long-term commitment to sustained federal research and development (R&D) funding in AI is critical to advance the United States’ leadership in global innovation. The federal government should increase non-defense investment in AI and basic research to strengthen research in critical fields of AI R&D, including healthcare, education, finance, and more, that underpin economic stability and robust growth. Such investment should reflect a multidisciplinary approach, focused on advancing basic and applied R&D, research on AI governance and norm-setting, and supporting research infrastructure with multi-agency collaboration.

FIDO for e-Government Services

whitePaper | December 13, 2022

The global COVID-19 pandemic closed offices and forced governments to rapidly move services online, if they weren’t already, to serve its citizens. Although usernames and passwords are easy to deploy and easy for citizens to use, they leave systems and users vulnerable to cyberattacks. They are especially vulnerable to phishing attacks designed to steal login credentials and compromise legacy multi-factor authentication (MFA) tools like those using one-time passwords (OTP) and push notifications. With phishing attacks on the rise, it is imperative for governments to support “phishing-resistant” MFA technology that is also accessible, efficient, and cost-effective.

Four ways governments can get the most out of their infrastructure projects

whitePaper | January 7, 2020

Infrastructure—for example, transportation, power, water, and telecom systems—underpins economic activity and catalyzes growth and development. The world spends more than $2.5 trillion a year on infrastructure, but $3.7 trillion a year will be needed through 2035 just to keep pace with projected GDP growth.1 National, state, and local governments are devoting increased amounts of capital to meet these needs, and for good reason. The McKinsey Global Institute estimates that infrastructure has a socioeconomic rate of return around 20 percent.2 In other words, $1 of infrastructure investment can raise GDP by 20 cents in the long run.

Creating More Responsive Government Organizations

whitePaper | April 13, 2020

Like many state governments, South Dakota has a large workforce. Managing payroll and benefits for 18,000 current employees and retirees is no easy task, and paper-based processes made it more complex and inefficient. South Dakota needed to move away from manual processes where employees submitted paper forms to HR personnel, who then re-entered the information into a database. State leaders wanted to transition to self-service tools that let employees do things like change their direct deposit information, update their tax withholding and provide a new address — all in just a few clicks.

2020 Global & Regional Corporate Governance Trends

whitePaper | January 11, 2020

For the first time, in 2020, we see the focus on the “E” and the “S” of environment, social and governance (ESG) as the leading trend globally, including in the United States, where it traditionally has not received as much attention by boards. Indeed, many of the key global trends for 2020, such as board oversight of human capital management (HCM), can be seen as subsets of ESG.
