As NOWCRJ enters its 16th anniversary, the organization is focused on strengthening its financial management systems and procedures. We are looking to redesign our systems to more comprehensively support our community organizing mission. The organization needs updated financial practices including the creation of participatory budget categories to reflect its programmatic priorities. As such, NOWCRJ is in search of a Financial Auditor to audit its Finance Department. It is accepting proposals to find a qualified source to evaluate and offer recommendations for updating its financial controls to support NOWCRJ's transition into a more transparent organization.
