Wanted - Costing Experts!

Cost accounting is relatively overlooked area in Central Finance Agencies in low income countries- which I think aught to be an important area if we want to progress to a comprehensive MTEF. The following job advertisement for an expert to Brazil, sounds interesting;

The objectives of the project are to (i) implement the public cost system in phases, starting with four pilot entities (health, education, prisons, and social assistance); (ii) develop a cost methodology adequate to the public services at the state level; (iii) organize seminars, courses, and other training events to educate the state officials on how to prepare and use cost information; (iv) document the cost methodology used in the existing projects; (v) prepare guidelines for external dissemination of cost data; and (vi) prepare progress reports.
