    WHAT DOES THE DIRECTOR, STRATEGY DO? The Director of Strategy provides executive leadership and direction in all matters relating to national Criminal Investigation (CI) activities and programs which provide the strategic direction for the CI organization. This includes execution of the Annual Business Plan and CI’s Investigative Priorities; determination of business system requirements; administration of the budget; oversight for the review of all aspects of CI operations to ensure alignment with the Annual Business Plan and CI’s Investigative Priorities; and research of criminal compliance issues to support development of strategic priorities and improve operational effectiveness.

    WHAT IS THE CRIMINAL INVESTIGATION DIVISION? Criminal Investigation (CI) is the investigative and law enforcement arm of the IRS. The American system of voluntary tax compliance relies heavily on self-assessments of what tax is owed. When individuals or corporations deliberately do not comply with the tax laws, CI responds with financial investigations and potential criminal prosecutions to promote compliance and confidence in the fairness of the tax system.
