The Fiscal Analyst also provides guidance on procurement, contract, contract reporting, and Phoenix system matters in compliance with the Judicial Branch Contracting Manual and relevant Trial Court Financial Policies and Procedures. In addition, the Fiscal Analyst develops solicitation and contract documents and training material and facilitates solicitation and contract activities for the smaller trial courts. The Fiscal Analyst works independently with moderate to limited supervision and interfaces with local court staff, incumbent and prospective court vendors, other government agencies, and other offices and units within the Judicial Council, including Legal Services.
