In that portfolio, he designs technical interventions for USAID, DFID and European Commission technical assistance contracts, as well as marketing and knowledge management to internal and external clients. His most recent interest involves combining good practices from DAI projects in PFM with innovative procurement oversight models that aim to curb corruption in public investment and public private partnerships.

David has field experience in Guatemala, El Salvador, the Dominican Republic, Jordan, Kenya, Uganda, South Sudan, the DRC, Nigeria, Armenia and Bangladesh. He holds a Masters in International Development Studies from George Washington University, a Bachelor’s Degree from the University of Delaware, and he is professionally proficient in Spanish.

Over the past 10 years, El Salvador’s government, with support from the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), has implemented a series of important tax system reforms that helped raise an additional $2.4 billion in state revenue.

The current Domestic Resource Mobilization Program, implemented by DAI, supports local and national government partners to increase revenue through a combination of increased revenue mobilization, improved expenditure management, and enhanced public-private dialogue. The program builds on  USAID’s Tax Policy and Administration Reform project and Fiscal Policy and Expenditure Management Program, both also managed by DAI.

DAI’s Dave Hall will speak at November’s ICGFM meeting about DAI’s work and the government of El Salvador’s efforts to significantly improve revenue mobilization and public financial management.
