Case Study Prompt

Our client is the federal taxation authority in Malaysia. There is only one taxation authority in Malaysia and all taxes are managed by this national body.

The taxation authority raises funds for the federal government by administering approximately 15 national taxes including a value added tax, income tax, corporation tax and payroll tax. The exact number of taxes isn’t important for this case.

The CIO of the taxation authority is concerned because she has been unable to keep IT spending under budget for the past 3 years.

We are here to help the CIO determine the underlying issue and determine how we can resolve this.

How would you go about helping the CIO to identify the cause of this issue?
