|Overview : |
The purpose of this procurement exercise is to relaunch the roster of Tax Experts to support the Tax Inspectors Without Borders (TIWB) Initiative. TIWB is a joint initiative of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) launched in 2015 to support developing countries strengthen national tax administrations. In 2017, UNDP established a roster of tax experts to undertake TIWB missions to host countries – the countries where the TIWB programme is being implemented. Over time there has been an increased demand for specific tax audit expertise as well as for TIWB expertise in other areas related to taxation. Accordingly, a new roster of tax experts is being launched.
Building on the success of the TIWB model and recognizing the needs of tax administrations, TIWB has expanded to provide support in other tax areas. These include Tax and Crime Investigations, Effective use of Automatically Exchanged Information, Tax Treaty Negotiations and Implementation, Tax and Natural Resource Contracts, and Tax and Environment. To support this new phase of the TIWB Initiative, UNDP is launching a new TIWB roster. Further, as part of the UNDP’s capacity enhancement efforts, the new TIWB roster is being brought on an automated platform as part of the GPN/ExpRes Roster. The new TIWB roster will have the following six thematic areas.
A. Tax Audits;
B. Tax and Crime Investigations;
C. Effective Use of Automatically Exchanged Information;
D. Tax Treaty Negotiations and Implementation;
E. Taxation and Natural Resource Contracts;
F. Taxation and Environment.
