The U.S. Treasury Department Office of Technical Assistance is recruiting experienced professionals in Revenue Policy and Revenue Administration on a competitive basis for both resident and/or intermittent assignments under personal services contracts. This announcement is for Global Technical Assistance assignments. We are recruiting for assignments in Africa, Asia, and South and Central America and thus have specific interest in revenue policy or administration specialists interested in assignments worldwide. For purpose of this document ‘revenue' includes tax and non-tax revenues as well as customs compliance. Current assignments, for example, include Republic of Georgia, Ukraine, Haiti, Paraguay, Burma, Cambodia, Guatemala, Mongolia, Liberia, Malawi, Rwanda, Guinea Bissau, Niger, Zambia, and Tanzania. Intermittent assignments can normally be expected to range in duration from two to six weeks in support of existing revenue projects. Applicants must be willing to accept global assignments requiring significant and often arduous international travel. Resident assignments, though few in number, may place advisors in a host country for one year or more.

Revenue administration experts should have strong experience in any of the following areas of revenue administration: tax and revenue administration law, executive management, audit, internal audit / inspections, collection, customs, returns processing, tax forms design, taxpayer service and education, public affairs and media relations, human resources, training, and IT systems.
