IRD embarks on core revenue system refresh

Inland Revenue is updating its Future Inland Revenue System Technology (FIRST) core revenue platform, which was originally implemented in 1992. The transformation project promises, like the original prize-winning FIRST development, to be one of the most significant IT projects in the country when it eventually gets under way.

Tender documents suggest the project could run for seven or eight years.

In the documents, the Department says that in the 15 years since FIRST was introduced, Inland Revenue’s functions have "grown considerably to include a range of Social Policy responsibilities alongside the taxation responsibilities".

"The activities that support these functions have been integrated into FIRST, creating a highly complex system environment."

As a result, the Department is seeking a consultant to deliver a "high level roadmap" for the transformation of FIRST.

"While the FIRST system has served Inland Revenue well, the information technology strategy has identified the need to modernise and redesign FIRST to ensure it is agile and flexible enough to continue to successfully deliver evolving Government policy," the documents say.

Online services development and support of Inland Revenue’s social policy role are examples given of new requirements.

Designing the roadmap will begin in March and the process is expected to take 12 weeks.
