  • Track expenditures and perform the client bill and receivable collection functions;
  • Perform and manage project management office (PMO) functional tasks and perform day-to-day contract management activities;
  • Understand and utilize standard processes for project management, quality management, and risk management;
  • Contribute to the growth and development of the overall Engagement Financial Management Practice through active involvement in one or more practice initiatives.
