OSA-Field Auditor Specialist I
This is entry-level work as a state auditing accountant. During the period of orientation and training, the minimum educational requirements must be supplemented with directed and supervised on-the-job training. Field Auditor Specialist I's must be instructed in the course of their daily activities by higher level Auditors. Such training must be supplemented with periodic lectures by Managing Auditing Accountants and other professionals on specific subjects; general staff meetings on matters of common interest; and department bulletins, manuals, and digests of laws. In addition to thorough grounding in principles of accounting and standards of auditing, the Field Auditor I's training should develop some knowledge of state and federal laws in relation to the financial administration of the public offices thereof; familiarity with various accounting systems in the agencies' accounting procedures that may provide more efficient operation and better internal control; and a viewpoint of complete objectivity in performance of duties, which requires independent judgment.
