The Financial and Performance Evaluator I is the entry and first working level in the series. Under supervision, incumbents assist in the planning, data gathering, analytical and consultative duties associated with evaluating the completeness, and accuracy of financial and programmatic data and/or other work products and developing recommendations for management consideration. Incumbents may independently perform smaller or less complex assignments and/or assist in the completion of a segment of a larger or more complex assignment. Prior to their first assignment new staff are given comprehensive training which introduces them to audit methods and procedures used by the Department of Finance Office of State Audits and Evaluations (OSAE).
DOF staff enjoy a great work life balance including a 40 hour work week with alternate work schedules available, eleven annual paid holidays, vacation and sick leave and CalPERS health and retirement benefits.
DOF offers attest experience required for CPA licensure as well as a professional certificate bonus of $4,800 paid over three years after passing all four parts of the CPA exam.
