    Course Description

    Virtual Training to Advance Revenue Administration (VITARA) is a joint initiative of four international organizations: the Inter-American Center of Tax Administrations (CIAT), the Intra-European Organization of Tax Administrations (IOTA), the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD).

    It was launched in 2020 to develop a highly effective, globally accessible, on-demand, and affordable online training curriculum on revenue administration issues. VITARA complements the four founding organizations' capacity development and training efforts.

    This module is an introductory-level module providing fundamental knowledge on the concepts related to strategic management of a tax administration. In addition, the module highlights the different plans tax administrations create in relation to their strategy and its implementation, before it moves on to explain the content, timeline, resources, and tasks needed to develop a plan along with the different planning phases and the hierarchy of plans. The module also highlights the common challenges and risks leaders of tax administrations face, the common mistakes made, and international good practices to follow in the strategic management of a tax administration.
