State Technical Committee for Accounting. Official Report.
This report contains validated task inventory listings for accounting occupations. An introductory report in brief outline form gives background of the work of the technical committee that identified the duties and tasks. This is followed by four attachments which make up most of the document. Attachment A has two parts: (1) an accounting skills inventory for 10 duties and corresponding tasks, ranked as entry, retention, or advanced; and (2) a tools, equipment, and work-aid list, indicating the frequency with which each is used on the job (low, medium, or high). Attachment B lists six assumptions of the technical committee project. Attachment C contains job descriptions for bookkeeper, accounting clerk, and nondegreed accountant. Attachment D, the largest of the four, begins with a list of basic skills for the accounting clerk, nondegreed accountant, and bookkeeper occupations. Next, a chart cross-references duties and tasks with performance guides for five accounting occupations: accounts payable clerk/supervisor; accounts receivable clerk/supervisor; fixed assets clerk/supervisor; general ledger clerk/supervisor; and payroll clerk/supervisor. The remainder of the guide lists the tasks for each of the 10 major duties, ranked as entry/retention (maintain files; process transactions; correct errors; prepare reports; resolve problems; communicate with outsiders) or advanced (audit records; establish policies; execute policies; supervise and instruct). Each task is presented on a separate page that provides information under the following headings: performance objectives, enabling objectives, tools and equipment, performance guide, teaching strategies, and instructional materials/resources.
