The Guyana Revenue Authority (GRA) seems to be experiencing difficulties in finding a new chief.
Yesterday, the tax collection authority disclosed that it will be publishing fresh invitations for applications after conducting a number of interviews recently.
“The Governing Board of the Guyana Revenue Authority will shortly make another attempt to recruit and appoint a high level professional to take up the post of Commissioner-General of the authority,” a release from the entity indicated.
A number of persons were interviewed for the Commissioner-General’s position last week.
“The board had recently organized and conducted interviews for the position but thinks that it should continue the search for a suitable candidate for the post.”
According to GRA, the Minister of Finance, Winston Jordan, who has been apprised of the situation, has urged the board to move as quickly as possible to complete the recruitment process for a Commissioner-General.
GRA has been without a substantive Commissioner-General since January after its former chief, Khurshid Sattaur, was sacked.
Since taking office last year, the new administration had vowed sweeping changes at the entity with an aim to bring revenues up and stamp out corruption.
However, a number of questionable decisions recently under the new board have been causing disquiet among staffers.
GRA sacked two of most senior Customs officials on Monday for what Chairman Rawle Lucas described as poor performance.
