This job description has been designed to indicate the general nature and level of work performed by employees within this classification. It is not designed to contain or be interpreted as a comprehensive inventory of all duties, responsibilities and qualifications required of employees assigned to the job.
Incumbents may interview, hire and make salary decisions on support staff they directly supervise. Disciplinary actions generally require coordination with the Department Chair or other administrator. Officers may make hiring recommendations on other departmental employees. There exists a very broad authority in the decision-making process regarding procedural decisions in record maintenance, the application of appropriate accounting classifications, approving expenditures and/or the commitment of unit resources. Non-routine problems may be handled independently but it is expected that such actions will be coordinated with the appropriate officials.
Problems encountered in this position may involve the interpretation and application of university policy, federal and state regulations affecting the use of available funds, reconciling varied and complex financial data and assuring the orderly flow of information into the university's automated systems.
