The Internal Revenue Service could save roughly $31,000 per employee if it switched to a private sector-style IT Asset Management system, according to a report by the International Association of IT Asset Managers (IAITAM).

The IRS has nearly 80,000 employees, meaning it would save $2.76 billion — nearly a quarter of its 2016 budget, IAITAM reported.

It's a report the House Ways and Means Committee is hearing Tuesday.

"At the root of much of what ails the federal government bloat in IT spending and related woes is a lack of meaningful IT Asset Management," the group wrote.

The group suggests the IRS make a two-pronged change:

"The first is a rigorous government-wide, centralized ITAM program responsible for creating policies, procedures, processes, and metrics for all government agencies."

"The second is an agency-level ITAM team, which would include the day-to-day management of all assets within that agency as set forth and required by the centralized program."

IAITAM reports that the IRS currently spends $37,000 annually per employee on IT issues; in the private sector it's not quite $5,000 per employee.
