Lowrance, J. and Ragoobeer, R. Designing a System for Structured Assessment of Compliance Risk. Proceeding of SRPP Research Conference, 2004.
The ability to detect, classify and quantify high-risk compliance patterns is crucial in improving compliance risk assessment and formulating effective enforcement strategies within the IRS. A formal reasoning technique known as structured argumentation has been explored by the IRS LMSB Research to improve compliance risk assessment. The IRS together with SRI International evaluated the use of structured argumentation using SEAS technology, towards enabling a more systematic and innovative approach towards assessing complex compliance issues. Technical experts, auditors, attorneys, researchers and managers can work collaboratively to unravel and respond to high-risk compliance patterns more rapidly and preserve this knowledge to be shared and referenced later.
