IRS Chief of Staff Todd Grams retiring
Friday - 12/20/2013, 4:35pm EST
Todd Grams, the chief of staff of the Internal Revenue Service, announced Friday he's retiring after 34 years of federal service, according to a note to staff obtained by Federal News Radio.
Grams' last day is Jan. 10.
Grams was named IRS chief of staff in June at the request of Acting Commissioner Danny Werfel in the wake of a leadership shakeup following revelations the agency had improperly targeted conservative groups for extra scrutiny.
It was his second stint at the agency after having spent three years as its chief information officer between 2003 and 2006 and two years as the agency's chief financial officer.
Prior to that, Grams served as executive-in-charge in the the Veterans Affairs Department's Office of Management and as the department's chief financial officer since 2009.
"Over the years, I've had opportunities I could not have imagined as a 21-year old coming out of the University of Maryland. ... In the end, I hope that in some way I have given as much to federal service as it has given to me," Grams wrote in the note. "I simply could not have asked for a better career, and for that I will always be grateful,"
In addition to his work at VA and IRS, Grams also served at the Census Bureau, the National Institute of Standards and Technology and the Office of Management and Budget.
Meanwhile on Friday, the Senate gave final approval to President Barack Obama's pick to head the IRS on a permanent basis. John Koskinen, the former chairman of Freddie Mac and all-around "turnaround specialist," will serve a five-year term as IRS commissioner.
