Billing and Accounting Technician
The Office of the Alternate Defense Counsel (OADC) is looking for a full-time employee (FTE). In this role, the Billing and Accounting Technician will learn, grow, and assist the OADC with contractor billing and accounting duties within its Financial Division.
 
A successful Billing and Accounting Technician will be able to collaborate with various OADC staff members to complete financial duties that will further support our Mission, goals, and needs.
 
About Us:
 
The Office of the Alternate Defense Counsel (OADC) is the legislatively created state agency responsible for providing client services and legal representation for indigent individuals (adults and youth) when the state has charged them with a criminal or delinquent act and the state public defender’s office has a conflict of interest.  The OADC accomplishes this by contracting with over 400 private attorneys and another 500 legal service providers (social workers, paralegals, investigators, legal researchers, case assistants, legal interns, etc.) to provide client services on an hourly basis. Our fundamental belief is that good holistic legal defense teams produce good results for our clients.
 
Mission Statement: 
 
The mission of the Office of the Alternate Defense Counsel (OADC), through the practice of holistic public defense, is to help adults and children who the government has charged with criminal and delinquent offenses. The OADC’s holistic practice model fosters ethical, informed, and standard-driven best practices in public defense. The OADC allocates resources in a manner intentionally designed to rebalance the disparate power wielded by the government in the criminal legal system. OADC advocates for every client’s inherent worth and dignity by centering the client’s lived experiences and voice to achieve the best legal outcome.
 
The OADC is dedicated to zealous, client-centered advocacy rooted in social justice, integrity, and humility. We recognize that we are working within a broken and racist criminal legal system. Public defense advocates play an essential role in challenging bias and disparity within the courtroom, within our offices, and within ourselves. Statistical data and experiences support that there is a disparate presence of violent policing, over-charging, and harsher sentencing outcomes for Colorado’s people of color and other vulnerable populations. The OADC is unwavering in its support of decarceration, the decriminalization of youth, and equity within the criminal legal system.
 
About the Job:
 
This full-time position will focus on and assist in three areas within the Financial Division. In addition, many duties will be conducted using the OADC’s billing systems, which are web-based systems that allows our contractors (attorneys, investigators, paralegals, social workers, researchers and case assistants) to enter case related invoices electronically.    
 
The first, and primary focus, will be to assist the OADC Billing Administrator.  These tasks will take approximately 20 hours per week.  This includes, but is not limited to, the following:

  • State warrant reconciliations; and
  • Contractor billing audits to ensure compliance with OADC procedures and payment directives.
 
The second focus will be to assist the OADC Office Manager.   These tasks will take approximately 10 hours per week. This includes, but is not limited to, the following:
 
  • Credit card tracking;
  • Staff and contractor travel coordination;
  • Audit of internal reimbursements;
  • Year-end 1099 review; and
  • The review, monitoring, and processing of revenue transactions within the Colorado Operations Resource Engine (CORE).
 
The third focus will be to assist the OADC Chief Financial Officer.  These tasks will take approximately 10 hours per week. This includes, but is not limited to, the following:
 
  • CORE accounting entries;
  • CORE budget entries;
  • Payroll reconciliations;
  • Expenditure and revenue tracking;
  • Over hours billing audits; and
  • Office of the State Auditor (OSA) audit requests.
Other duties deemed necessary to help fulfill our Mission.
