Job ID:




Full/Part Time:





Audit Services is responsible for auditing the State's 58 superior courts and assessing their compliance with the policies and procedures adopted by the Judicial Council of California (JCC). Such policies include the Trial Court Financial Policies and Procedures Manual and the California Rules of Court, among others. The JCC's executive management may also, at times, request audits (or alternatively non-audit consultative reviews) of the JCC's internal operations.

This position can conduct audits of the superior courts or perform non-audit consultative reviews that focus on the high-risk areas facing the JCC and the judicial branch. These audits or reviews can involve the detailed review of the branch's financial information and requires, at a minimum, that the incumbent develops or possesses a general understanding of the State's accounting and financial reporting practices. Assignments can also focus on other areas, such as the branch's court construction activity or on information technology (IT) security protocols, similarly requiring the incumbent to develop or possess experience in these areas. Upon the completion of audit testing and analysis, the incumbent prepares working papers, writes draft findings, and discusses the results with the auditee and with Audit Services' management. Effective written and verbal communication skills are essential for the position.

Working under the direction of a senior auditor, the position receives general instruction on non-complex and straightforward audit assignments and receives greater levels of instruction on moderate to highly-complex and high-profile assignments.
