As if the employees and higher-ups at the Internal Revenue Service haven’t embroiled the agency in enough scandal, a new one has just popped up that has government observers engaged in a bit of head-scratching. The agency is purchasing surveillance equipment.

Making it even more of a mystery, the IRS seems in something of a rush to buy it. The agency solicited bids on Thursday for, among other items, hidden cameras in coffee trays, plants and clock radios, and made a deal four days later, June 10, according toCNS News.

“The Internal Revenue Service intends to award a Purchase Order to an undisclosed Corporation,” according to the bid request.

“The following descriptions are vague due to the use and nature of the items,” it continued.

“If you feel that you can provide the following equipment, please respond to this email no later than 4 days after the solicitation date.”

It then listed the items the IRS is seeking to purchase as follows:

(QTY 4) Plant Concealment Color 700 Lines Color IP Camera Concealment with Single Channel Network Server, supports dual video stream, Poe, software included, case included, router included

(QTY 4) Covert Coffee tray with Camera concealment

(QTY 4) Remote surveillance system, Built-in DVD Burner and 2 Internal HDDs, cameras

(QTY 2) Concealed clock radio

(QTY 4) Color IP Camera Concealment with single channel network server, supports dual video stream, poe, webviewer and cms software included, audio

The bid request notes the “Place of performance” as being “1111 Constitution Ave North West, District of Columbia 20224, United States,” which is the headquarters building for the IRS according to Google Maps.

The agency’s troubles began with the discovery that it had targeted conservative organizations seeking tax-exempt status, a scandal that began with a few Ohio agents, and has so far mushroomed to 88 agents and touched senior IRS officials in Washington.
