SUPERVISION RECEIVED AND EXERCISED
Receives direct or general supervision from the assigned supervisory or management personnel. Exercises no direct supervision over staff.
Accounting Technician I:
This is the entry-level class in the Accounting Technician series. Initially under close supervision, incumbents with general administrative experience perform work in payroll, accounts receivable, accounts payable, utility billing, and in addition to performing a variety of record keeping, reconciliation, and account support activities. As knowledge and experience are gained, the work becomes broader in scope, assignments are more varied, and are performed under more general supervision. Positions at this level usually perform most of the duties required of the positions at the journey-level but are not expected to function at the same skill level and usually exercise less independent discretion and judgment in matters related to work procedures and methods. Work is usually supervised while in progress and fits an established structure or pattern. Exceptions or changes in procedures are explained in detail as they arise. Since this class is often used as a training class, employees may have only limited or no directly related work experience.
Accounting Technician II:
This is the journey-level class in the Accounting Technician series. Incumbents perform the full range of technical work in all the following areas: payroll, accounts receivable, accounts payable, utility billing and/or other billing, and, in addition to performing a wide variety of record-keeping, reconciliation, and account support activities including contract administration. Positions at this level are distinguished from the entry-level by the performance of the full range of duties as assigned, working independently and exercising judgment and initiative. Positions at this level receive only occasional instruction or assistance as new or unusual situations arise and are fully aware of the operating procedures and policies of the work unit. This class is distinguished from the Senior Accounting Technician in that the latter is responsible for more complex and higher-level technical accounting work, exercises a higher level of discretion and independent decision-making, and provides technical and functional direction to lower-level finance support staff.
Positions in the Accounting Technician class series are flexibly staffed and positions at the Accounting Technician II level are normally filled by advancement from the Accounting Technician I level after gaining the knowledge, skill, and experience which meet the qualifications for and after demonstrating the ability to perform the work of the higher-level class.
Management reserves the right to add, modify, change, or rescind the work assignments of different positions and to make reasonable accommodations so that qualified employees can perform the essential functions of the job.
