SUBJECT: ANNUAL INTERNAL REVENUE SERVICE (IRS) SAFEGUARDS INTERNAL INSPECTIONS REPORT-INDIVIDUAL TELEWORK
Federal regulations require Family Support Division (FSD) staff with access to federal tax information (FTI), to complete an annual internal inspection.
Federal regulations require agencies to conduct internal inspections of all offices with access to FTI to ensure that the information is adequately safeguarded. To comply with this IRS requirement, all staff, including those working remotely (sometimes known as teleworkers), must complete the electronic Internal Inspections Report.
Complete and submit the Internal Inspections Report annually. To access the Internal Inspections Report, sign into Employee Learning Center (ELC) and go to Internal Inspection Procedure. Click on the “Internal Inspections Report Individuals Telework Office” button at the top of the page indicating the individual inspection. The required report is also available online at https://apps.dss.mo.gov/FSDIRSSafeguardingForms/ for staff who do not have access to the ELC.
The ELC will email staff a reminder 30 days before an Internal Inspection Report is due. It is not necessary to complete the course more than once every 12 months, or until a new email reminder is received.
- Review this memorandum with appropriate staff.
- Complete the online Internal Inspection Report annually.
