GENERAL DESCRIPTION OF CLASS
The GOVERNMENTAL AUDITOR 3 organizes and conducts comprehensive audits, including the largest, most complex or sensitive audits, or those which require specialized technical skills (e.g., Information Resources Management auditing, performance auditing, fraud investigations, or other audit specialties) in accordance with appropriate audit standards. Employees in this class may also be involved with audit office administrative activities and leadership responsibilities.
This is the fourth level of a four-level class series. Responsibility for every aspect of the full range of auditing projects, to independently conduct or lead audits requiring specialized technical skills, and/or to participate in the overall management of the audit office distinguishes this class from the lower levels.
DUTIES AND RESPONSIBILITIES
The duties listed below are not inclusive but characteristic of the type and level of work associated with this class. Individual positions may perform all or some combination of the duties listed below as well as other related duties.
RELATIONSHIPS WITH OTHERS
Employees in this class have regular contact by telephone and in person with all levels of agency or organization staff to arrange entrance or exit conferences, to obtain information, to discuss findings and recommendations and to resolve sensitive or controversial issues arising during the audit. They have regular contact with agency management in planning audit projects, setting priorities and scheduling audits.
Employees in this class receive general supervision from an audit manager or other administrative superior. At this level, work is frequently self-initiated based on requests for audits or the goals of the agency and the employee exercises significant independence in judgment and action to complete the work. Work is reviewed through periodic progress reports and in terms of overall results.
The work is performed within the parameters of applicable Federal rules and regulations, State statues, agency policies and procedures and the appropriate standards as established by the Institute of Internal Auditors, General Accounting Office or the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants.
Some positions in this class require the willingness to travel, including overnight trips, to perform audits at entities in various geographic locations under a variety of working conditions and to work irregular hours as required.
A Bachelor's degree in a business-related field, such as business administration, public administration, finance, economics, computer science, etc., AND three years of auditing experience that includes one year of experience doing governmental auditing.
Twenty quarter hours of college courses in a business or financial field such as the areas listed above AND two additional years of auditing experience may substitute for the degree.
Successful completion of the duties and training as an Oregon Governmental Auditor (Entry) will substitute for one year of governmental auditing experience.
Transcripts must be submitted for all required or related courses.
For specialized audit positions (e.g., EDP Auditor), at least one year of experience must be in the specialized audit area.
