SCOPE OF POSITION: 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, Europe, and South and Central America. We thus have specific interest in specialists willing to accept assignments worldwide. For purpose of this document ‘revenue' includes tax and non-tax revenues as well as customs compliance. Current assignments include, for example, Ukraine, Moldova, Haiti, Paraguay, Guatemala, Honduras, Dominican Republic, Burma, Sri Lanka, Papua New Guinea, Rwanda, Guinea-Bissau, Niger, Côte d'Ivoire, and Cameroon. Short-term assignments can normally be expected to range in duration from two to six weeks. Resident assignments, though few in number, may place advisors in a host country for one year or more. Applicants must be willing to accept often arduous international travel.

Revenue administration experts should have strong experience in any of the following areas of revenue administration: tax and revenue administration law, executive management, audit, dispute resolution, internal audit / inspections, collection, customs, returns and payment processing, tax forms design, taxpayer service and education, public affairs and media relations, human resources, training, and IT systems. Revenue policy experts should possess experience in any of the following: organizing revenue policy analysis organizations; review, analysis and development of revenue and tax policy proposals; drafting and review of revenue laws and regulations; review and analysis of the economic impact of tax and fiscal policy changes; and application of statistical modeling to revenue forecasting. Certain assignments require candidates to have significant project management experience, including the ability to prepare project work plans, statements of work and manage human resources. In addition to technical skills, we are looking for individuals with outstanding communication skills, who are especially effective at assessing client needs and then providing effective oral and written guidance. Prior foreign technical assistance work and knowledge of a foreign language are highly desirable, but not required. There is a special interest currently in individuals with both technical skills and bilingual fluency in French/English, Spanish/English, Portuguese/English, and Russian (or Ukrainian)/English.

Candidates must be U.S. citizens.

SALARY AND BENEFITS: The salary ranges are from $66.05 per hour to the current maximum salary prescribed by the Office of Technical Assistance, $84.72 per hour. Overseas benefits are provided as allowed by federal regulations.
