Accountant 2 - Real Estate Accountant
Description Note: Not all unique aspects of the job are covered by this job description Stanford University is one of a select group of American universities that have achieved eminence in both undergraduate and graduate education and in a broad range of academic disciplines. The University is internationally recognized for the quality of its teaching and research, its distinguished faculty and its outstanding student body. Our mission is to educate future leaders and promote interdisciplinary, world-class research and teaching. This passion makes Stanford an intensely creative, rewarding, and challenging place to work. Over the past 10-15 years, the business, technology and political environments have become more complex, faster paced, and litigious. Stringent accounting requirements have arisen to address the transparency of investments and keep pace with other areas of concern. New accounting standards have been issued for leases and not-for-profit accounting and reporting. In addition, other regulations and rules we need to comply with are more complex, e.g., international compliance considerations and banking regulations, and a new internal control framework – COSO - has been adopted. Heightened scrutiny from our external auditors has resulted in more extensive requests for information in an effort to understand non-profits’ business activities and related controls. Additionally, technology continues to change rapidly and the underlying tools further add to the complexity and riskiness of the environment. Stanford’s endowed lands include both academic and non-academic properties. The academic property of the university consists primarily of the main campus area, which was part of the original land endowment, and other satellite locations. The Board of Trustees (BoT) has designated certain non-academic properties on Stanford endowed lands for the production of income in support of the university. This is often accomplished through rental revenue from long term leases. These leased properties include complex leases and development agreements, with a variety of real estate holdings, ranging from medical and commercial office buildings, retail buildings, hotels, single-family homes, agricultural lands, and large development projects in Palo Alto, Menlo Park, and Redwood City. The real estate portfolio was valued at over $7B at the end of fiscal year 2017. Within the Financial Management Services (FMS) organization, the Financial Analysis and Information Reporting team (“FAIR”) is part of the Controller’s Office (CO) and is responsible for financial reporting, the coordination of our external audit, financial analysis, and a variety of general accounting activities. FMS’s goal is to lead, drive and model best practices in financial management for the campus community, while maintaining proper controls and compliance with internal and external policies.
