Abt Associates Chief of Party - Uganda Revenue Mobilization for Development - Jobs in Uganda

Organization Overview

The International Development Division focuses on improving the lives and economic well-being of people in lower and middle-income countries.

We command technical expertise in health, agriculture, climate change, food security and governance—as well as in international evaluation.

Our multi-layered health portfolio includes policy, health promotion and disease prevention, health finance, and health systems management.

In partnership with government clients and local experts, our high-quality programs in Africa, Asia, Latin America, and the Middle East are known for impact and innovation.


Abt Associates, a mission-driven, global leader in research and program implementation in the field of international development, seeks a qualified Chief of Party for the USAID-funded Uganda Revenue Mobilization for Development (DRM4D).

The goal of the DRM4D activity is to increase domestic revenue mobilization (both tax and non-tax) and thereby create the fiscal space for public spending and investments in service delivery and other priority areas.

The activity will support interventions that enhance predictability and fairness in the tax system, reduce the costs and burdens of tax compliance, and create platforms and opportunities for public-private dialogue on both the mobilization and use of public resources.

At the sub-national level, the activity will support interventions aimed at expanding tax and non-tax revenue options for selected local governments. The project will also engage with the Government of Uganda (GOU) on opportunities for investing the increased revenue into poverty reducing sectors such as health, education and agriculture.

We are looking for individuals who are committed to exceeding expectations and who strive to improve the lives of people worldwide. This position is conitngent upon award.
