Small agencies don't have a lot of fat in their budgets. They are coping with sequestration by focusing on the small things.

From Our Reporters
The Internal Revenue Service accepts more than 80 percent of all tax returns electronically. So the systems that process the data are under enormous pressure to perform.
The IRS recently hired Unisys under two separate contracts to make sure its systems handle the annual influx of data and can return money to taxpayers.
PV Puvvada is the group vice president for civilian agencies for Unisys federal systems. He tells executive editor Jason Miller how the updated Enterprise Computing Center Support contract will help the IRS take money in and send out refunds more efficiently.
