The accountant routinely creates new procedures for tasks that he/she is completing for his/her job. Also, in carrying out the duties of his/her job, the accountant may identify existing procedures that need modification to describe the changing method of completing the task.
Before implementing a new procedure or editing an existing one, the proposed changes are first routed to the Assistant Controller Financial Reporting for review. Secondly, they are routed to the other accountants for their review as well. This ensures that the new or revised procedure does not conflict with any other accounting procedures and that it is in the standard format used within the office.
