Chief Accounting Officer
CTR is seeking a dynamic and innovative leader to fill the newly created statewide Chief Accounting Officer (CAO) position. The CAO will be the primary leader responsible for overseeing CTR’s financial system accounting functions.
The CAO is a direct report to the Deputy Comptroller, with certain reporting responsibilities to the First Deputy Comptroller, and/or the Comptroller of the Commonwealth.
Building on the Comptroller’s mission of promoting accountability, integrity and clarity in Commonwealth business, fiscal, and administrative enterprises, the CAO will oversee the evolving design and current management of three units within the General Accounting area, including:
- The Budgetary Team which provides guidance, regulatory control, and statutory oversight of state fiscal and financial operations including appropriations, spending, inter-departmental activities, and budgetary analysis;
- The Ledger Team which ensures that the general ledger of the Commonwealth is in proper order to prepare financial statements; to provide detail for underlying key assets, liabilities, revenue, and expenditure reports; and to support the annual audit process; and
- The Non-Tax Revenue Team which provides guidance, regulatory control, and statutory oversight of state non-tax revenue operations.
