Full Text of JOE Listing:
The Congressional Budget Office (CBO), a small nonpartisan agency that provides economic and budgetary analyses to Congress, seeks to fill the senior executive position responsible for directing and managing the Tax Analysis Division. This division provides Congress with analyses of the effects of past and proposed changes to federal tax policies and projecting federal revenues as part of the CBO's official ten-year budget "baseline."

The Assistant Director will supervise a staff of about 16, most of whom have advanced degrees and extensive experience in preparing revenue projections or writing on issues of public finance. The agency's analysis of issues and legislative proposals is a critical and direct input to the decisionmaking process of the Congress.

The Assistant Director for Tax Analysis will work with CBO's Director and Deputy Director to formulate and implement a strategic agenda for analysis on those topics. Key responsibilities include working with Congressional committees to identify important issues for CBO's analysis; overseeing staff to ensure the timely preparation of high-quality and clearly written studies and reports; developing testimony for Congressional committees; and providing guidance on model design and development.
