Greetings! We hope you had an inspirational and aspirational week! This week's top stories include TTB’s Annual Report, an update to TTB.gov/ designed to make finding information easier, information about TTB hiring, and a list of the past week's top distilled spirits pages at TTB.gov/.


TTB presents an annual report to communicate relevant performance and financial information regarding its programs and operations to its customers and stakeholders.

The TTB Annual Report highlights our program accomplishments for the fiscal year (October 1 – September 30) and offers a comparative look at our actual performance versus our target levels as set out in our annual performance budget. The report also provides financial information on the Bureau operations for that fiscal year. This combination of the Bureau's program performance and financial information in a single document lends accountability and transparency to how TTB uses its funding to return value to American taxpayers.

We recently updated TTB.gov/ by adding links to relevant formal guidance, for example, rulings, procedures, industry circulars and FAQs, on the pages that contain links to the TTB laws and regulations that apply to beer, wine and distilled spirits.  This way you can access pertinent information from one commodity page. We hope this makes it easier for you to find information you need to know in order to operate compliant businesses.

If you are reading our Newsletter, you probably already know that the alcohol industry that TTB regulates has been experiencing phenomenal growth for several years. 

These new, typically small businesses have tremendous potential for driving their local economies.  However, with more competition, our responsibility for maintaining a level playing field becomes even more important.  Whether it’s ensuring that only qualified applicants enter the business or preventing misleading labeling, TTB’s work benefits consumers and the regulated industry.

To meet the challenges that come with this massive influx of new businesses, TTB is currently looking to fill multiple positions, including labeling and formula specialists in our Alcohol Labeling and Formulation Division, alcohol and tobacco specialists and technicians in our National Revenue Center, and chemists in our Scientific Services Division. 

If you are interested in joining a bureau that ranked among the top 2% in the Best Places to Work in the Federal Government in 2015, or know someone else who might be, here are the links to the vacancy announcements:
