BANK SUPERVISION ADVISOR
The Department of the Treasury’s Office of Technical Assistance (OTA) helps finance ministries and central banks of developing and transition countries strengthen their ability to manage public finances effectively and safeguard their financial sectors. Within OTA, the Banking & Financial Services Program supports the development of sound, robust, well-regulated institutions that are effective financial intermediaries accessible to all and resistant to mismanagement, fraudulent financial activity, and adverse macroeconomic conditions.
OTA’s Banking & Financial Services (“BFS”) program is seeking experienced bank supervision experts to support intermittent and resident project engagements in developing and transition countries.
Advisors contribute to project engagements by lending technical expertise and practical knowledge to partner agencies. OTA engagements are based on close interaction between advisors and working-level partners, whether in a finance ministry, central bank, or other relevant government agency. OTA advisors introduce sound practices in daily work routines through ongoing mentoring and on-the-job training.
Specific OTA BFS projects may entail:
Banking, Insurance, and Financial Market Supervision: implementation of the Basel Accords, risk-based supervision; stress tests and early warning systems;
Financial Stability: harmonizing macro-prudential approaches to monitor financial sector risks; creating oversight committees and issuing financial reports to highlight potential instabilities or weaknesses in financial sectors;
Internal Audit and Accounting: adopting and implementation of International Financial Reporting Standards; central bank audit function;
Corporate Governance: devising structures for central banks and the commercial banking sector;
Financial Inclusion: promoting responsible access to and usage of relevant financial services for all people and businesses;
Monetary Policy: analysis of monetary, macroeconomic, and financial policy; currency issuance and revaluation; establishment of monetary policy research departments.
Intermittent advisors are expected to travel to partner countries on short-term engagements to deliver training and advisory services to facilitate the adoption of international best practices and build capacity of staff to implement them within the local context. Resident advisors live in partner countries for a number of years, implementing project activities alongside counterparts on a daily basis. Advisors work independently to deliver assistance while reporting to the OTA BFS program team based in Washington, DC.
