supervision, an Accounting Assistant II performs a variety of accounting tasks.
Typically, staff in this category has responsibility for a specialized functional
assignment with substantial public contact. They are responsible for keeping
up to date with procedural changes affecting their output. This level incumbent
is expected to be cognizant of related functions and recognizes problems and
independently solves them. The main difference between this level and the next
level is that the Accounting Assistant III handles complex problems that necessitate
interpretation of University policies.
