GENERAL DESCRIPTION OF CLASS
The FISCAL AUDITOR 1 audits the accounting records and financial statements of governmental agencies, utilities, and private businesses subject to State regulation or functions as an internal auditor. Employees in this class work independently or in teams to determine the accuracy of financial statements, accounting systems, and the adequacy of internal controls. Audits may be performed in the field or as desk audits.

This class is distinguished from the trainee level by having responsibility for working independently to complete audit assignments and by the greater degree of judgment required in this position. It is distinguished from the higher level by the absence of responsibility for coordinating team audits and writing and reviewing team audit reports.
