Santa Clara County Housing Authority • San Jose, CA
Posted 2 months ago
Under general supervision, performs complex and varied technical and professional accounting work, including auditing, analyzing, and verifying fiscal records and reports, preparing financial and statistical reports, assisting in budget preparation, providing information to the Santa Clara County Housing Authority (Agency) staff regarding accounting practices and procedures, and reconciling general ledger accounts; prepares year-end audit reports and schedules; assists in developing financial analysis and reporting and internal control practices; performs research, interpretation, and analysis of Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) and Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) guidelines; performs related work as required.
This is the journey-level class in the accountant series. Incumbents perform the most complex and responsible accounting and record-keeping duties in support of Agency-wide financial functions, programs, and initiatives. Employees 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. Assignments are given with general guidelines and incumbents are responsible for establishing objectives, timelines, and methods to deliver work products. Work is typically reviewed upon completion for soundness, appropriateness, and conformity to policy and requirements, and the methodology used in arriving at the end results is not reviewed in detail. This class is distinguished from the Accounting Supervisor in that the latter is the full supervisory-level in the professional accounting class series and is responsible for major accounting functions and/or programs.
