Tax chief competition moves ahead

The commission assessing candidates for the State Revenue Service decided today to shortlist four candidates for the third round of the competition, the State Chancellery said.

During the third round the candidates will meet external experts – independent human resources specialists who will assess their competence.

Later the commission will decide which candidate or candidates will be selected for a meeting with Finance Minister Dana Reizniece-Ozola (Greens/Farmers).

As reported, a total of nineteen candidates applied for the vacant post of the Revenue Service's head, and eight of them were selected for the second round.

LETA also reported that the previous competition for the Revenue Service's director general failed as the commission decided that none of the candidates was eligible for the third round.

Finance Minister Dana Reizniece-Ozola (Greens/Farmers) then offered the job to the State Environmental Service's Director General Inga Kolegova, who accepted the offer but later withdrew her candidacy after the Revenue Service found that she had failed to provide full and accurate information about large transactions in her declaration of assets and income.
