A total of 160 locality pay surveys, with reference dates ranging from November 1991 to December 1992, comprise the data within this report. The primary objective of these surveys, conducted as part of the Occupational Compensation Survey Program (OCSP) of the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, is to describe the level and distribution of occupational pay in a variety of the Nation’s local labor markets, using a consistent survey approach. _ Another Program objective is to provide information on the incidence of employee benefits among and within local labor markets. Although this publication does not include benefits data, area bulletins do present this information when available. For national data on benefit practices, see the Bureau's Employee Benefits Survey. OCSP develops information that is used for a variety of purposes including wage and salary administration, collective bargaining, and plant site determination. In addition, the U.S. Department of Labor uses this program’s data in administering the Service Contract Act of 1965. OCSP locality survey results also help determine local pay adjustments under the Federal Employee Pay Comparability Act of 1990. Under the Act, the President appoints a Pay Agent (currently the Secretary of Labor and the Directors of the Office of Management and Budget and the Office of Personnel Management), who develops comparability procedures and annually recommends Federal pay adjustments. To meet the Act’s requirements, the Bureau's White-collar Pay and Area Wage Survey programs were integrated into the OCSP. The merger resulted   https://fraser.stlouisfed.org Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis  in: (1) the expansion of the survey’s industrial coverage to include all private nonfarm establishments (except households) employing 50 workers or more and to include State and local governments, and (2) the addition of more professional, administrative, technical, and protective service occupations to the surveys. Pay  Tables A-l through E-5 provide pay data for selected white- and blue-collar occupations common to a variety of industries. The A-series tables provide U.S. estimates of straight-time weekly or hourly pay by occupation, along with pay distributions for the 134 publishable occupational levels. The B-series tables compare national estimates of average straight-time pay for establishments in four size classifications—under 500 employees, 500-999 employees, 1,000-2,499 employees, and 2,500 employees or more. The C-series tables show regional differences in average pay, for all establishments, and for only those located in metropolitan areas. The D-series tables provide occupational pay averages in goods-producing industries, in addition to contrasting pay levels between manufacturers of durable goods with those producing nondurables. The E-series tables present averages for service producing industries. Appendixes Appendix A describes the concepts, methods, and coverage used in the Occupational Compensation Survey Program. Appendix B includes the descriptions used by Bureau field economists to classify workers in the survey occupations.  Table A-1.

Scope and Method of Survey  Survey coverage The June 1992 national and regional estimates in this report are based on occupational compensation surveys conducted in 1991-92 by the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Surveys covered establishments employing 50 workers or more in goods producing industries (mining, construction, and manufacturing); service producing industries (transportation, communications, electric, gas, and sanitary services; wholesale trade; retail trade; finance, insurance, and real estate; and services industries); and State and local governments.1 Private households, agriculture, the Federal Government, and the self-employed were excluded from the survey. The Bureau conducts Occupational Compensation Survey Program (OCSP) surveys on a sample basis. Tables 1 and 2 in this appendix show the estimated number of U. S. establishments and workers covered by the OCSP scope along with the number actually included in the survey samples used to develop national estimates.  nonagricultural employment in a stratum is 500,000 and the sample area has employment of 100,000, the sample area would be assigned a weight of 5. Establishment samples To present data on a locality basis, statisticians draw establishment samples for each area surveyed in the OCSP. Sampling design involves: Organizing the sampling frame (the list of all area establishments) into strata based on industry and employment size; determining the size of the sample for each stratum; and selecting an establishment sample from each stratum. The Bureau develops sampling frames from State unemployment insurance reports for the 48 contiguous States and the District of Columbia. Establishments with 50 workers or more during the sampling frame's reference period are included in the survey sampling frame, even if they employ fewer than 50 workers at the time of the survey. Prior to survey collection, review of the sampling frame uncovers any necessary corrections, which typically involve adding missing establishments, removing out-of-business and out-of-scope units, and updating addresses, employment levels, industry classification, and other information. The establishment sample size in a stratum is determined by the expected number of employees to be found (based on previous occupational pay surveys) in professional, administrative, technical, protective service, and clerical occupations. In other words, the larger the number of employees expected to be found in designated occupations, the larger the establishment sample in that stratum. An upward adjustment to the establishment sample size also is made in strata expected to have relatively high sampling error for certain occupations, based on previous survey experiences. After sample size determination, the Bureau selects a probability sample, with each establishment having a predetermined chance of selection. To obtain optimum accuracy at minimum cost, the Bureau selects a greater proportion of large than small establishments. Combining the data from each establishment, weighted according to its probability of selection, results in the formation of unbiased estimates.  Area sample To permit presentation of national and regional data, the Bureau developed an area sample consisting of 90 metropolitan areas and 70 nonmetropolitan counties. These areas represent the Nation's 326 Metropolitan Statistical Areas (as defined by the Office of Management and Budget in 1984), and the remaining portions of the 48 contiguous States. Table 3 of this appendix lists the metropolitan and nonmetropolitan area samples which were used. The area sample involves the selection of areas from strata (groups) of similar areas. Criteria for area stratification (grouping) are nonagricultural employment level, geographic region, and type of industrial activity. For estimates of all areas combined, data from each area are weighted by the ratio of total nonagricultural employment in the stratum to that in the sample area. For example, if total 1 For this survey, an establishment is an economic unit which produces goods or services, a central administrative office, or an auxiliary unit providing support services to a company. In manufacturing industries, the establishment is usually at a single physical location. In service-producing industries, all locations of an individual company in a Metropolitan Statistical Area are usually considered an establishment. In government, an establishment is usually defined as all locations of a government entity.   https://fraser.stlouisfed.org Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis  A-1  estimates combine data from each industry, even though pay data may not appear separately for each industry division.  Data collection and payroll reference Bureau field economists obtain survey data from a sample of establishments throughout the United States, primarily by personal visit. Reference months for the 160 area surveys ranged from November 1991 through December 1992, and the combined average payroll reference month was June 1992.  Data limitations The average pay data presented in this report reflect nationwide and regional estimates. Industries and establishments differ in pay levels and job staffing, and thus contribute differently to the estimates for each job. Therefore, average pay does not necessarily reflect the pay differential among jobs within individual establishments. Survey occupations are limited to employees meeting the specific criteria in each job definition. Estimates of occupational employment do not include employees whose salary data are not available, as well as those for whom there is no satisfactory basis for classification by work level. For these reasons, and because occupational structures among establishments differ, OCSP estimates of occupational employment derived from an establishment sample serve only as a general guide to the size and composition of the labor force, rather than a precise measurement of employment.  Survey occupations Occupations surveyed are common to a variety of public and private industries, and are representative of the following employment groups: (1) Professional and administrative; (2) technical and protective service; (3) clerical; (4) maintenance and toolroom; and (5) material movement and custodial. Occupational classification was based on a uniform set of job descriptions designed to take account of interestablishment variation in duties within the same job. Appendix B lists and describes the occupations selected for study, along with corresponding occupational codes and titles from the 1980 edition of the Standard Occupational Classification Manual.  Survey nonresponse Data were not available from 11.8 percent of the sample establishments (representing 4,829,862 employees covered by the survey). An additional 6.8 percent of the sample establishments (representing 1,965,581 employees) were either out of business or outside the scope of the survey. If a sample member refuses to participate and cannot provide data, BLS adjusts the weights (based on the probability of selection in the sample) of responding sample establishments to account for the missing data. Weights for establishments which were out of business or outside the scope of the survey change to zero. Some sampled establishments have a policy of not disclosing salary data for certain employees. No adjustments were made to pay estimates to account for these missing data. The proportion of employees for whom pay data were not available was less than 2 percent.  Occupational pay Occupational pay data correspond to full-time workers, i.e., those hired to work a regular weekly schedule. The data exclude premium pay for overtime and for work on weekends, holidays, and late shifts. Also excluded are bonuses and lump-sum payments of the type negotiated in the auto and aerospace industries, as well as profit-sharing payments, attendance bonuses, Christmas or year-end bonuses, and other nonproduction bonuses. Pay increases—but not bonuses—under cost-ofliving allowance clauses and incentive payments, however, are included in the pay data. Weekly hours for professional, administrative, technical, protective service, and clerical occupations refer to the standard workweek (rounded to the nearest tenth of an hour) for which employees receive regular straight-time salaries (exclusive of pay for overtime at regular and/or premium rates). Average weekly earnings for these occupations are rounded to the nearest dollar. A-series tables provide distributions of workers by earnings intervals. The mean (average) is computed for each job by totaling pay of all workers and dividing by the number of workers. The median designates position—one-half of the workers receive the same as or more and one-half receive the same as or less than the rate shown. The middle range is defined by two rates of pay; one-fourth of the workers earn the same as or less than the lower of these rates and one-fourth earn the same as or more than the higher rate. Medians and middle ranges are not provided when they do not meet reliability criteria. For some occupations, pay data may not be available at the industry or all­ industry (overall) level because either (1) data do not provide statistically reliable results, or (2) data possibly disclose individual establishment data. All-industry  https://fraser.stlouisfed.org Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis  Reliability of the estimates—sampling errors Two types of error, sampling and nonsampling affect the reliability of survey estimates. Sampling errors occur because observations are from a sample, not the entire population. The particular sample used in this survey was one of a number of all possible samples of the same size that could have been selected using the same sample design. Estimates derived from different samples differ from each other. A measure of the variation among differing estimates is called the standard error or sampling error. This measure indicates the precision with which an estimate from a particular sample approximates the average result of all possible samples. The relative A-2  standard error is the standard error divided by the estimate. The smaller the relative error, the greater the reliability of the estimate. Estimates of relative errors for the 1992 national and regional estimates in this bulletin vary among the occupational work levels depending on such factors as the frequency with which the job occurred, the dispersion of salaries for the job, and survey design. For the 134 publishable work levels, the distribution of one relative standard error is as follows: Relative Standard Error  Percent ofpublished occupational work levels  Less than 1 percent 1 and under 3 percent 3 and under 5 percent 5 percent and over  25.5 65.7 8.2  Reliability of the estimates—nonsampling errors A variety of sources may cause nonsampling errors, the second type of sample survey error. Nonsampling errors may originate in collection, response, coverage, and estimation of data. Typical sources of nonsampling error include the inability to obtain information from some establishments; difficulties in interpreting and applying survey occupational definitions; failure of respondents to provide correct information; and inaccuracies in recording or coding the collected data. Although not specifically measured, OCSP nonsampling errors are expected to be minimal due to high response rates; the extensive and continuous training of field economists; careful screening of data at several levels of review; periodic evaluations of job definition suitability; and thorough field testing of new or revised job definitions. The OCSP Job Match Validation (JMV) process helps measure and control nonsampling errors occurring during data collection. Introduced in 1983, the JMV quality control procedure identifies the frequency, reasons for, and sources of incorrect decisions made by Bureau field economists in matching establishment occupations to OCSP occupations. JMV reviewers examine data from a sample of survey participants and reinterview the original respondents to verify the accuracy of the job match decisions. Among OCSP areas surveyed, the JMV process typically results in data changes for less than 10 percent of all sampled job match decisions.  0.6  Computation of the standard error aids in the determination of a "confidence interval" around a sample estimate. A 95 percent confidence interval is centered around a sample estimate and includes all values within 2 times the estimate's standard error. If all possible samples were selected to estimate the population value, the confidence interval from each sample would include the true population value approximately 95 percent of the time.   https://fraser.stlouisfed.org Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis  A-3   https://fraser.stlouisfed.org Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis  Appendix table 1.

Occupational Descriptions  The primary purpose of preparing job descriptions for the Bureau's occupational pay surveys is to assist its field economists in classifying into appropriate occupations workers who are employed under a variety of payroll titles and different work arrangements from establishment to establishment and from area to area. This permits grouping of occupational wage rates representing comparable job content. Because of this emphasis on comparability of occupational content, the Bureau's job descriptions may differ significantly from those in use in individual establishments or those prepared for other purposes. In applying these job descriptions, the Bureau's field economists are instructed to exclude working supervisors; apprentices; learners, beginners, and trainees; and part-time, temporary, and probationary workers, unless specifically included in the job description. Handicapped workers whose earnings are reduced because of their handicap are also excluded. The titles and numeric codes below the job titles in this appendix are taken from the 1980 edition of the Standard Occupational Classification Manual (SOC), issued by the U.S. Department of Commerce, Office of Federal Statistical Policy and Standards. In general, the occupational descriptions of the Bureau of Labor Statistics are much more specific than those found in the SOC manual. The BLS occupation, "Attorney," for example, excludes workers engaged in patent work; the SOC occupation (code 211) includes patent lawyers. Thus, in comparing the results of this survey with other sources, factors such as differences in occupational definitions and survey scope should be taken into consideration.  Positions covered by this definition are characterized by the inclusion of work that is analytical, creative, evaluative, and advisory in nature. The work draws upon and requires a thorough knowledge of the fundamental doctrines, theories, principles, and terminology of accountancy, and often entails some understanding of such related fields as business law, statistics, and general management. (See also chief accountant.) Professional responsibilities in accountant positions above levels I and II include several such duties as: Analyzing the effects of transactions upon account relationships; Evaluating alternative means of treating transactions; Planning the manner in which account structures should be developed or modified; Assuring the adequacy of the accounting system as the basis for reporting to management; Considering the need for new or changed controls; Projecting accounting data to show the effects of proposed plans on capital investments, income, cash position, and overall financial condition;  Professional  Interpreting the meaning of accounting records, reports, and statements;  ACCOUNTANT  Advising operating officials on accounting matters; and  (1412: Accountant and auditor) Recommending improvements, adaptations, or revisions in the accounting system and procedures.  Performs professional operating or cost accounting work requiring knowledge of the theory and practice of recording, classifying, examining, and analyzing the data and records of financial transactions. The work generally requires a bachelor's degree in accounting or, in rare instances, equivalent experience and education combined.   https://fraser.stlouisfed.org Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis  Accountant I and II positions provide opportunity to develop ability to perform professional duties such as those enumerated above.  B-1  In addition to such professional work, most accountants are also responsible for assuring the proper recording and documentation of transactions in the accounts. They, therefore, frequently direct nonprofessional personnel in the actual day-to-day maintenance of books of accounts, the accumulation of cost or other comparable data, the preparation of standard reports and statements, and similar work. (Positions involving such supervisory work but not including professional duties as described above are not included in this description.) Some accountants use electronic data processing equipment to process, record, and report accounting data. In some such cases the machine unit is a subordinate segment of the accounting system; in others it is a separate entity or is attached to some other organization. In either instance, provided that the primary responsibility of the position is professional accounting work of the type otherwise included, the use of data processing equipment of any type does not of itself exclude a position from the accountant description nor does it change its level.  Typical duties and responsibilities. Performs a variety of accounting tasks such as: examining a variety of financial statements for completeness, internal accuracy, and conformance with uniform accounting classifications or other specific accounting requirements; reconciling reports and financial data with financial statements already on file, and pointing out apparent inconsistencies or errors; carrying out assigned steps in an accounting analysis, such as computing standard ratios; assembling and summarizing accounting literature on a given subject; preparing relatively simple financial statements not involving problems of analysis or presentation; and preparing charts, tables, and other exhibits to be used in reports. In addition, may also perform some nonprofessional tasks for training purposes. Responsibility for the direction of others. Usually none.  Accountant II  a.  Top technical experts in accounting, for an organization, who are responsible for the overall direction of an entire accounting program which includes general accounting and at least one other major accounting activity such as cost, property, sales, or tax accounting;  General characteristics. At this level, the accountant makes practical application of technical accounting practices and concepts beyond the mere application of detailed rules and instructions. Initial assignments are designed to expand practical experience and to develop professional judgment in the application of basic accounting techniques to simple problems. Is expected to be competent in the application of standard procedures and requirements to routine transactions, to raise questions about unusual or questionable items, and to suggest solutions.  b.  Accountants above level VI who are more concerned with administrative, budgetary, and policy matters than the day-to-day supervision of an operating accounting program; and  Direction received. Work is reviewed to verify general accuracy and coverage of unusual problems, and to insure conformance with required procedures and special instructions.  c.  Accountants primarily responsible for 1) designing and improving accounting systems or 2) performing nonoperating staff work such as budget or financial analysis, financial analysis, or tax advising.  Typical duties and responsibilities. Performs a variety of accounting tasks, e.g., prepares routine working papers, schedules, exhibits, and summaries indicating the extent of the examination and presenting and supporting findings and recommendations. Examines a variety of accounting documents to verify accuracy of computations and to ascertain that all transactions are properly supported, are in accordance with pertinent policies and procedures, and are classified and recorded according to acceptable accounting standards.  Excluded are;  Accountant I General characteristics. At this beginning professional level, the accountant learns to apply the principles, theories, and concepts of accounting to a specific system. The position is distinguishable from nonprofessional positions by the variety of assignments; rate and scope of development expected; and the existence, implicit or explicit, of a planned training program designed to give the entering accountant practical experience. (Terminal positions are excluded.)  Responsibility for the direction of others. responsible for supervision of a few clerks.  Direction received. Works under close supervision of an experienced accountant whose guidance is directed primarily to the development of the trainee's professional ability and to the evaluation of advancement potential. Limits of assignments are clearly defined, methods of procedure are specified, and kinds of items to be noted and referred to supervisor are identified.  General characteristics. The accountant at this level applies well established accounting principles, theories, concepts, and practices to moderately difficult problems. Receives detailed instructions concerning the overall accounting system and its objectives, the policies and procedures under which it is operated, and the nature of changes in the system or its operation. Characteristically, the accounting system or   https://fraser.stlouisfed.org Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis  Usually none, although sometimes  Accountant III  B-2  reporting (e.g., cost accounting using standard cost, process cost, and job order techniques) for different internal operations or divisions. Depending upon the work load and degree of coordination involved, the accountant IV may have such assignments as the supervision of the day-to-day operation of; (a) an entire accounting system which has a few relatively stable accounting segments; (b) a major segment (e.g., general accounting, cost accounting, or financial statements and reports) of an accounting system serving a larger and more complex organization; or (c) in a complex system, may be assigned to a relatively narrow and specialized segment dealing with some problem, function, or portion of work which is of the level of difficulty characteristic of this level.  assigned segment is stable and well established (i.e., the basic chart of accounts, classifications, the nature of the cost accounting system, the report requirements, and the procedures are changed infrequently). Depending upon the work load involved, the accountant may have such assignments as supervision of the day-to-day operation of: (a) the entire system of a relatively small organization; (b) a major segment (e.g., general accounting, cost accounting, financial statements and reports) of a somewhat larger system; or (c) in a complex system, may be assigned to a relatively narrow and specialized segment dealing with some problem, function, or portion of work which is appropriate for this level.  Direction received. A higher level accountant normally is available to furnish advice and assistance as needed. Work is reviewed by spot checks and appraisal of results for adequacy of professional judgment, compliance with instructions, and overall accuracy and quality.  Direction received. A higher level professional accountant normally is available to furnish advice and assistance as needed. Work is reviewed for technical accuracy, adequacy of professional judgment, and compliance with instructions through spot checks, appraisal of results, subsequent processing, analysis of reports and statements, and other appropriate means.  Typical duties and responsibilities. As at level HI, a primary characteristic of most positions at this level is the responsibility of operating an accounting system or major segment of a system in the intended manner.  Typical duties and responsibilities. The primary responsibility of most positions at this level is to assure that the assigned day-to-day operations are carried out in accordance with established accounting principles, policies, and objectives. The accountant performs such professional work as: developing nonstandard reports and statements (e.g., those containing cash forecasts reflecting the interrelations of accounting, cost budgeting, or comparable information); interpreting and pointing out trends or deviations from standards; projecting data into the future; predicting the effects of changes in operating programs; or identifying management informational needs, and refining account structures or reports accordingly.  The accountant IV exercises professional judgment in making frequent, appropriate recommendations for: new accounts; revisions in the account structure; new types of ledgers; revisions in the reporting system or subsidiary records; changes in instructions regarding the use of accounts, new or refined account classifications or definitions; etc. Also makes day-to-day decisions concerning the accounting treatment of financial transactions and is expected to recommend solutions to complex problems beyond incumbent's scope of responsibility.  Within the limits of delegated responsibility, makes day-to-day decisions concerning the accounting treatment of financial transactions. In expected to recommend solutions to moderately difficult problems and propose changes in the accounting system for approval at higher levels. Such recommendations are derived from personal knowledge of the application of well-established principles and practices.  Responsibility for the direction of others. Accounting staff supervised, if any, may include professional accountants.  Accountant V General characteristics. The accountant V applies accounting principles, theories, concepts, and practices to the solution of problems for which no clear precedent exists or performs work which is of greater than average responsibility due to the nature or magnitude of the assigned work. Responsibilities at this level, in contrast to accountants at level IV, extend beyond accounting system maintenance to the solution of more complex technical and managerial problems. Work of accountants V is more directly concerned with what the accounting system (or segment) should be, what operating policies and procedures should be established or revised, and what is the managerial as well as the accounting meaning of the data included in the reports and statements for which they are responsible.  Responsibility for the direction of others. In most instances is responsible for supervision of a subordinate nonprofessional staff; may coordinate the work of lower level professional accountants.  Accountant IV General characteristics. At this level the accountant applies well-established accounting principles, theories, concepts, and practices to a wide variety of difficult problems. Receives instructions concerning the objectives and operation of the overall accounting system. Compared with level HI, the accounting system or assigned segment is more complex, i.e., (a) is relatively unstable, (b) must adjust to new or changing operational environments, (c) is substantially larger or (d) is complicated by the need to provide and coordinate separate or specialized accounting treatment and   https://fraser.stlouisfed.org Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis  Examples of assignments characteristic of this level are supervision of the day-to-day operation of: (a) an entire accounting system which has a few relatively complex  B-3  accounting segments; (b) a major segment of a larger and more complex accounting system; (c) an entire accounting system (or major segment) that is relatively stable and conventional when the work includes significant responsibility for accounting system design and development; or (d) in a complex system, may be assigned to a relatively narrow and specialized segment dealing with some problem, function, or portion of work which is itself of the level of difficulty characteristic of this level. Direction received. An accountant of higher level normally is available to furnish advice and assistance as needed. Work is reviewed for adequacy of professional judgment, compliance with instructions, and overall quality. Typical duties and responsibilities. The accountant V performs such professional work as: participating in the development and coordinating the implementation of new or revised accounting systems, and initiating necessary instructions and procedures; assuring that accounting reporting systems and procedures are in compliance with established administrative policies, regulations, and acceptable accounting practices; providing technical advice and services to operating managers, interpreting accounting reports and statements, and identifying problem areas; and evaluating complete assignments for conformance with applicable policies, regulations, and tax laws.

Accountant VI General characteristics. At this level, the accountant applies accounting principles, theories, concepts, and practices to specialized, unique, or nonrecurring complex problems (e.g., implementation of specialized automated accounting systems). The work is substantially more difficult and of greater responsibility than level V because of the unusual nature, magnitude, importance, or overall impact of the work on the accounting program.  Excluded are positions which do not require full professional accounting training. Also excluded are specialist positions in tax or management advisory services.  Accountant, Public I  At this level the accounting system or segment is usually complex, i.e., (a) is generally unstable, (b) must adjust to the frequent changing needs of the organization, or (c) is complicated by the need to provide specialized or individualized reports.  General characteristics. As an entry level public accountant, serves as a junior member of an audit team. Receives classroom and on-the-job training to provide practical experience in applying the principles, theories, and concepts of accounting and auditing to specific situations.

Prepares selected portions of audit working papers.  the client's business activities. Routine procedures and techniques are sometimes inadequate and require adaptation. Necessary data are not always readily available. When assigned to more difficult and complex audits (see level IV), the accountant may run the audit of a major component or serve as the primary assistant to the accountant in charge. Direction received. Works under the general supervision of a higher level public accountant who oversees the operation of the audit. Work is performed independently, applying generally accepted accounting principles and auditing standards, but assistance on difficult technical matters is available. Work may be checked occasionally during progress for appropriateness and adherence to time requirements, but routine analyses, methods, techniques, and procedures applied at the work site are expected to be correct.  Accountant, Public II General characteristics. At this level, the public accountant carries out routine audit functions and detail work with relative independence. Serves as a member of an audit team on assignments planned to provide exposure to a variety of client organizations and audit situations. Specific assignments depend upon the difficulty and complexity of the audit and whether the client has been previously audited by the firm. On moderately complex audits where there is previous audit experience by the firm, accomplishes complete segments of the audit (i.e., functional work areas such as cash, receivables, etc.). When assigned to more complicated audits, carries out activities similar to public accountant I.  Typical duties and responsibilities. Is responsible for carrying out the technical features of the audit, leading team members and personally performing the most difficult work.

Carries out a variety of sampling and testing procedures in accordance with the prescribed audit program, including the examination of transactions and verification of accounts, the analysis and evaluation of accounting practices and internal controls, and other detail work. Prepares a share of the audit working papers and participates in drafting reports. In moderately complex audits, may assist in selecting appropriate tests, samples, and methods commonly applied by the firm and may serve as primary assistant to the accountant in charge. In more complicated audits concentrates on detail work. Occasionally may be in charge of small, uncomplicated audits which require only one or two other subordinate accountants. Personal contacts usually involve only the exchange of factual technical information and are usually limited to the client's operating accounting staff and department heads.  Accountant, Public IV General characteristics. At this level, the public accountant directs field work including difficult audits--e.g., those involving initial audits of new clients, acquisitions, or stock registration-and may oversee a large audit team split between several locations. The audit team usually includes one or more level III public accountants who handle major components of the audit. The audits are complex and clients typically include those engaged in projects which span accounting periods; highly regulated industries which have various external reporting requirements; publicly held corporations; or businesses with very high dollar or transaction volume. Clients are frequently large with a variety of operations which may have different accounting systems. Guidelines may be general or lacking and audit programs are intricate, often requiring extensive tailoring to meet atypical or novel situations.  Accountant, Public III General characteristics. At this level the public accountant is in charge of a complete audit and may lead a team of several subordinates. Audits are usually accomplished one at a time and are typically carried out at a single location. The firms audited are typically moderately complex, and there is usually previous audit experience by the firm. The audit conforms to standard procedural guidelines, but is often tailored to fit   https://fraser.stlouisfed.org Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis  Direction received. Works under general supervision. The supervisor sets overall objectives and resource limits but relies on the accountant to fully plan and direct all technical phases of the audit. Issues not covered by guidelines or known precedents are  B-5  discussed with the supervisor, but the accountant’s recommended approaches and courses of action are normally approved. Work is reviewed for soundness of approach, completeness, and conformance with established policies of the firm. Typical duties and responsibilities. Is responsible for carrying out the operational and technical features of the audit, directing the work of team members, and personally performing the most difficult work. Often participates in the development of the audit scope, and drafts complicated audit programs with a large number of concurrently executed phases. Independently develops audit steps and detailed procedures, deviating from traditional methods to the extent required. Makes program adjustments as necessary once an audit has begun; selects specific methods, types and sizes of samples, the extent to which discrepancies need to be investigated, and the depth of required analyses. Resolves most operational difficulties and unanticipated problems.  ATTORNEY (211; Lawyer) Performs consultation and advisory work and carries out the legal processes necessary to effect the rights, privileges, and obligations of the organization. The work performedrequires completion of law school with an L.L.B. degree (or the equivalent) and admission to the bar. Responsibilities or functions include one or more of the following or comparable duties: Preparing and reviewing various legal instruments and documents, such as contracts, leases, licenses, purchases, sales, real estate, etc.; Acting as agent of the organization in its transactions;  Assigns work to team members; reviews work for appropriateness, conformance to time requirements, and adherence to generally accepted accounting principles and auditing standards.

Assigned work is designed to provide diversified experience, as a background for future higher level work. Examples of duties include: reviewing requisitions and drafting solicitations; evaluating bids and the dependability of suppliers; meeting with commercial representatives; and monitoring the progress of contractors. Supervisor provides general instructions, monitors work, and reviews recommendations. Standard or routine aspects of work are performed with greater independence.  Buyer/Contracting Specialist III Purchases items, materials, or services of a technical and specialized nature, usually by negotiating a standard contract based on reimbursement of costs and expenses or a fixed price ceiling. May be responsible for overseeing the postaward (contract administration) functions (e.g., monitoring contract compliance, recommending action on problem situations, and negotiating extensions of delivery schedules) of such contracts. The items, while of a common general type, are usually made, altered, or customized to meet the user's specific needs and specifications.  Buyer/Contracting Specialist II Purchases "off-the-shelf" types of standard, generally available technical items, materials, and services. Transactions may involve occasional modification of standard and common usage items, materials, and services, and include a few stipulations about unusual packing, marking, shipping, etc.  The number of potential vendors is likely to be small and price differentials often reflect important factors (quality, delivery dates and places, etc.) that are difficult to evaluate.  Transactions usually involve dealing directly with manufacturers, distributors, jobbers, etc. Limited contract negotiation techniques may be used, primarily for developmental purposes to increase employee's skill and knowledge.   https://fraser.stlouisfed.org Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis  The quantities purchased of any item or service may be large.  B-15  Many of the purchases involve one or more such complications as: specifications that detail, in technical terms, the required physical, chemical, electrical, or other comparable properties; special testing prior to acceptance; grouping of items for lot bidding and awards; specialized processing, packing, or packaging requirements; export packs; overseas port differentials; etc. Is expected to keep abreast of market and product developments.

Examples of contracts include organization-wide software or communication systems, and industry-specific testing equipment with unique specifications.  Examples of items purchased include; castings; special extruded shapes of normal size and material; special formula paints; electric motors of special shape or speeds; production equipment; special packaging of items; raw materials in substantial quantities or with special characteristics; and protective services where security presents an especially significant problem.  Buyer/Contracting Specialist IV Negotiates and/or administers purchase contracts for complex and highly technical items, materials, or services, frequently specially designed and manufactured exclusively for the purchaser. Transactions require dealing with manufacturers and often involve persuading potential vendors to undertake the manufacture of custom designed items according to complex and rigid specifications. Negotiation techniques are also frequently involved with convincing the vendor to reduce costs. Quantities of items and materials purchased are often large in order to satisfy the requirements for an entire large organization for an extended period of time. Complex schedules of delivery are often involved. Contracting specialists determine appropriate quantities to be contracted for at any given period of time and negotiate with vendors to establish or adjust delivery schedules.  May persuade suppliers to expand their plants or convert facilities to the production of new items or services. Transactions are often complicated by technological changes, urgent needs to override normal production, great volume of production, commodity shortages, and lack of competition among vendors. Frequent technological changes require delays or modifications to contract proposals or to existing contracts. In-depth cost analysis is required, often with little pricing precedent due to the unique aspects of the products.  Negotiations and contract administration are often complicated by the following: requirements for spare parts, preproduction samples and testing, or technical literature; patent and royalty provisions; or renegotiation of contract terms. In reviewing contract proposals, extensive cost analysis is required to evaluate the cost of such factors as 1) numerous technical specifications, and 2) potential changes in manufacturing processes that might affect projected cost figures. These complications result in the incorporation of numerous special provisions and incentives in renegotiated contracts.  (397: Programmer)  In addition to the work described above, a few positions may also require supervision of a few lower level buyers, contracting specialists or clerks. (No position is included in this level solely because supervisory duties are performed.)  Performs programming services for establishments or for outside organizations who may contract for services.

Classification by level Establishment positions which meet the above criteria are matched at one of six levels. Primary leveling concepts are presented for each of the three options: (1) operations, (2) program evaluation, and (3) program development. These leveling concepts take precedent over typical duties and responsibilities in determining the level of a match. Job duties that are "moderately complex" in one establishment may be "procedural" in another establishment.  Personnel Specialist I (operations only) As a trainee, receives classroom and/or on-the-job training in the principles, procedures, and regulations of the personnel program and in the programs, policies, and objectives of the employing organization. Assignments provide experience in applying personnel management principles, procedures and techniques, while performing a variety of uncomplicated tasks under close supervision.  Personnel Specialist II Operations. Performs standard procedural duties which require the use of personnel management principles and techniques to identify and analyze personnel problems. Provides limited advice to management, such as informing departmental supervisors of typical duty patterns which comprise an occupational level or of types of candidates available for a particular type of job. Receives specific instructions with each new assignment. Program evaluation and development. Assists higher level specialists in preliminary phases of evaluation or development. Receives increasingly difficult assignments under close supervisory guidance and review. Typical duties include: analyzing and evaluating nonexempt jobs using standard procedures; participating in recruitment or compensation surveys for nonexempt jobs; rating applicants using established guides; explaining established policies, procedures, or regulations to employees or management; and performing limited tasks to assist higher level specialists in employee development, employee relations, and labor relations programs.  Personnel Specialist III  Program evaluation and development. Assists higher level specialists or managers by studying less complex aspects of personnel programs (e.g., merit promotions, incentive awards), resolving problems of average difficulty, and reporting findings to be included in evaluation reports. Typical duties include: analyzing, evaluating, and defining both exempt and nonexempt jobs in various occupational groups using established procedures; participating in surveys of broad compensation areas; recruiting and screening applicants for both exempt and nonexempt jobs, checking references and recommending placement; assisting in identifying training needs and arranging training, initiating personnel actions or awards, and interpreting established personnel policy, regulations, and precedents; or participating in preparing for and conducting labor negotiations.  Personnel Specialist IV Operations. Applies to three different work situations. In situation (1), specialists use technical knowledge, skills, and judgment to solve complex technical problems. Advisory services to management are similar to those described at level HI. Situation (2) combines typical level III operating skills with comprehensive management advisory services. Advisory services require high technical skills, along with broad personnel knowledge, to solve problems from a total personnel management perspective. In situations (1) and (2), specialists plan and complete work following established program goals and objectives. Their judgments and recommendations are relied on for management decisions. Situation (3) applies to specialists who are solely responsible for performing moderately complex assignments (as described in level III) and for rendering final decisions on assigned personnel matters under general administrative supervision. Responsibilities include planning and scheduling work and coordinating and integrating program(s) with other personnel, management, and operational activities. Program evaluation. Conducts on-site review of personnel actions in several organizational units; determines factual basis for personnel actions, evaluates actions for consistency with established guidelines, and reports significant findings. Program development. Independently develops supplemental guidelines for existing procedures.  Operations. Performs moderately complex assignments following established policies and guidelines. Work requires experience both in a personnel specialty and in the organization serviced. Advises management on the solution to personnel problems of   https://fraser.stlouisfed.org Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis  limited scope for which there are precedents. Renders advice concerning own specialty, but discusses impact on other personnel areas. Works independently under specified objectives; closer supervision is provided for complex assignments, precedent-setting actions, and actions that impact either other functional areas or key working relationships.  Typical duties include: analyzing, evaluating, and defining difficult exempt jobs, i.e., those in research and development, administration, law, and computer science; planning  B-24  and conducting broad compensation surveys and recommending pay and benefit adjustments; developing training plans and procedures for an organizational segment; participating in complex employee-management relations issues such as controversies, poor morale, and high turnover; or developing plans and procedures for labor negotiations in a moderately complex organization.  Personnel Specialist V Operations. Applies to two different work situations. In situation (1), specialists solve unusually complex and unprecedented problems which require creative solutions. In situation (2), specialists are assigned complex technical problems (as described in level IV - situation (1) combined with responsibility for providing comprehensive advice to management. Management advisory services are complicated by jobs and organizations that are complex, new, or dynamic, and by the abstract nature of the work processes. Supervision and guidance relate largely to program goals and time schedules. Specialists are authorized to make decisions for their organizations and consult with their supervisors concerning unusual problems and developments.  management in improving personnel programs in unusually complex organizations. Such expertise extends beyond knowledge of guidelines, precedents, and technical principles into areas of program management and administration. In situation (3), specialists serve as evaluation experts assigned to uniquely difficult and sensitive personnel problems, e.g., solutions are unusually controversial; specialists are required to persuade and motivate key officials to change major personnel policies or procedures; or problems include serious complaints where facts are vague. Program development. Specialists have full technical responsibility for unusually complex personnel projects, studies, policies, or programs. The scope and impact of these assignments are broad and are of considerable importance to organizational management. Supervision received is essentially administrative, with assignments given in terms of broad general objectives and limits.  PERSONNEL SUPERVISOR/MANAGER (143: Personnel, training, and labor relations specialist)  Program evaluation. Independently evaluates personnel programs to determine the degree to which they are achieving goals and objectives, ascertaining weaknesses in programs and guidelines, and making recommendations for improvements. Conclusions are reported to top management.  Supervises three or more personnel specialists and/or clerks and paraprofessionals. Although the work is supervisory in nature, it requires substantial knowledge of personnel policies, procedures, and practices. Excluded are:  Program development. Applies expertise in modifying procedures and guidelines. Projects are usually narrow in scope, i.e., limited to an occupational field or to a specific program area. May have full technical responsibility for personnel projects, studies, policies, or programs that are less complex than described at level VI. Typical duties include: Participating in the development of personnel policies and procedures; analyzing, evaluating, and defining unusually difficult jobs, e.g., those in emerging occupations which lack applicable guidelines, or in organizations so complex and dynamic that it is difficult to determine the extent of a position's responsibility; recruiting candidates for one-of-a-kind jobs; participating in employee-management relations where the underlying issues are difficult to identify; planning and administering a comprehensive employee development program; or performing labor relations assignments for a large conglomerate.  a.  Positions matched to the personnel specialist definition:  b.  Directors of personnel, who service more than 250 employees and have significant responsibility for administering all three of the following functions: Job evaluation, employment and placement, and employee relations and services.

May shift resources among projects and perform long range budget planning.  Base Level of Work  Note:  Conceptually, the base level of work is the highest level of nonsupervisory work under the direct or indirect supervision of the supervisor/manager which (when added to the nonsupervisory levels above it) represents at least 25 percent of the total nonsupervisory, nonclerical staff and at least two of the full-time positions supervised.  In rare instances, supervisory positions responsible for directing a sizable staff (e.g., 10-20 professional employees) may not have subordinate supervisors, but have all other LS-2 responsibilities. Such positions should be matched to LS-2.  LS-3  Directs 2 subordinate supervisory levels and the work force managed typically includes substantially more than 20 employees. Makes major decisions and recommendations (listed below) which have a direct, important, and substantial effect on own organization and work. Performs at least three of the following:  To determine the base level of nonsupervisory, nonclerical work: 1) array the positions by level of difficulty; 2) determine the number of workers in each position; and 3) count down from the highest level (if necessary) until at least 25 percent of the total nonsupervisory, nonclerical staff are represented. Establishment supervisory positions matched in the personnel specialist series should be counted as "non-supervisory" in computing the base level for personnel supervisor/ manager matches. Due to the unique nature of this particular occupation series, the mechanics of the base level concept are often not applicable in determining the appropriate job level of a personnel supervisor/manager. See Alternative Criteria For Matching Personnel Supervisors/Managers at the end of this definition for assistance in assuring correct job matches.  Level of Supervision  -  decides what programs and projects should be initiated, dropped, expanded, or curtailed;  -  determines long range plans in response to program changes, evaluates program goals, and redefines objectives;  -  determines changes to be made in organizational structure, delegation of authority, coordination of units, etc.;  -  decides what compromises to make in program operations in view of public relations implications and need for support from various groups;  -  decides on the means to substantially reduce program operating costs without impairing overall operations; justifies major equipment expenditures; and  -  resolves differences between key subordinate officials; decides, or significantly affects final decisions, on personnel actions for subordinate supervisors and other key subordinates.  Supervisors and managers should be matched at one of the three LS levels below which best describes their supervisory responsibility. LS-1  LS-2  Plans, coordinates, and evaluates the work of a small staff, normally not more than 10 personnel specialists, paraprofessionals, and clerks; estimates staffing needs for personnel unit and schedules, assigns, and reviews work to meet completion date; interviews candidates for own unit and recommends hires, promotions, or reassignments; and resolves complaints, referring group grievances and more serious unresolved complaints to higher level supervisors; may reprimand employees. Directs a sizable staff (normally 10-20 employees), typically divided into sub-units controlled by subordinate supervisors; advises higher level management on work problems of own unit and the impact on broader programs; collaborates with heads of other units to negotiate and/or coordinate work changes; makes decisions on work or training problems presented by subordinate supervisors; evaluates subordinate supervisors and reviews their evaluations of their employees; selects nonsupervisors (higher level approval   https://fraser.stlouisfed.org Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis  Table B-2.

Level equivalents of personnel professional occupations Personnel Specialist  Personnel Supervisor/Manager  on statutory requirements and preparation of delinquent returns. Tax collectors primarily performing returns investigation work are not typically found above level II.  Director of Personnel  Collection of delinquent taxes involves analyzing a taxpayer’s financial worth and ability to pay. In resolving delinquency, tax collectors evaluate (or use appraisers to evaluate): market value of assets; equity shares of other creditors; liens and ownership rights; taxpayer earning capacity; and the potential of taxpayer businesses. If bankruptcy is imminent, tax collectors file notices of lien to give their agency priority over subsequent creditors. If necessary, collectors take action for seizure and make arrangements for selling property. However, before resorting to enforced collection procedures, they may recommend alternatives such as installment payments, appointing escrow agents, or accepting collateral or mortgage arrangements to protect their agency's equity.

LS-1  Organizational structure is not complex and internal procedures and administrative controls are simple and informal; supervisor directs staff through face-to-face meetings.  Exclusions. Not all positions titled "secretary" possess the above characteristics. Examples of positions which are excluded from the definition are as follows:  LS-2  Organizational structure is complex and is divided into subordinate groups that usually differ from each other as to subject-matter, function, etc.; supervisor usually directs staff through intermediate supervisors; and internal procedures and administrative controls are formal. An entire organization (e.g., division, subsidiary, or parent organization) may contain a variety of subordinate groups which meet the LS-2 definition. Therefore, it is not unusual for one LS-2 supervisor to report to another LS-2 supervisor.  a.  Clerks or secretaries working under the direction of secretaries or administrative assistants as described in e;  b.  Stenographers not fully performing secretarial duties;  c.  Stenographers or secretaries assigned to two or more professional, technical, or managerial persons of equivalent rank;  d.  Assistants or secretaries performing any kind of technical work, e.g., personnel, accounting, or legal work;  e.  Administrative assistants or supervisors performing duties which are more difficult or more responsible than the secretarial work described in LR-1 through LR-4;  f.  Secretaries receiving additional pay primarily for maintaining confidentiality of payroll records or other sensitive information;  g.  Secretaries performing routine receptionist, typing, and filing duties following detailed instructions and guidelines; these duties are less responsible than those described in LR-1 below; and  h.  Trainees.  Classification by level Secretary jobs which meet the required characteristics are matched at one of five levels according to two factors: (a) level of the secretary's supervisor within the overall organizational structure, and (b) level of the secretary's responsibility. The table following the explanations of these factors indicates the level of the secretary for each combination of factors.  Level of secretary's supervisor (LS) Secretaries should be matched at one of the three LS levels below best describing the organization of the secretary's supervisor.   https://fraser.stlouisfed.org Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis  B-40  The presence of subordinate supervisors does not by itself mean LS-2 applies, e.g., a clerical processing organization divided into several units, each performing very similar work is placed in LS-1. In smaller organizations or industries such as retail trade, with relatively few organizational levels, the supervisor may have an impact on the policies and major programs of the entire organization, and may deal with important outside contacts, as described in LS-3. LS-3  Organizational structure is divided into two or more subordinate supervisory levels (of which at least one is a managerial level) with several subdivisions at each level. Executive's program(s) are usually inter-locked on a direct and continuing basis with other major organizational segments, requiring constant attention to extensive formal coordination, clearances, and procedural controls. Executive typically has: financial decision making authority for assigned program(s); considerable impact on the entire organization's financial position or public image; and responsibility for, or has staff specialists in, such areas as personnel and administration for assigned organization. Executive plays an important role in determining the policies and major programs of the entire organization, and spends considerable time dealing with outside parties actively interested in assigned program(s) and current or controversial issues.  Level of secretary's responsibility (LR) This factor evaluates the nature of the work relationship between the secretary and the supervisor or staff, and the extent to which the secretary is expected to exercise initiative and judgment. Secretaries should be matched at the level best describing their level of responsibility. When the position's duties span more than one LR level, the introductory paragraph at the beginning of each LR level should be used to determine  d. Collects information from the files or staff for routine inquires on office program(s) or periodic reports. Refers nonroutine requests to supervisor  which of the levels best matches the position. (Typically, secretaries performing at the higher levels of responsibility also perform duties described at the lower levels.)  or staff. LR-1  Carries out recurring office procedures independently.
