The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) is about to spend $881 million on implementing the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 (PPACA), and it needs to do more to keep PPACA projects from running off the rails.

Officials at the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) give that assessment in an IRS PPACA implementation risk management plan review prepared at the request of lawmakers at the Senate Appropriations Committee and the House Small Business Committee.

The steering committee includes three program management offices and implementation teams and four operational divisions.

The program management offices and implementation teams oversee four PPACA business workstream teams.
