Technological Research

Technological Research
A laboratory is a facility that provides controlled conditions in which technological research, experiments, and measurement are performed. Laboratories used for scientific research take many forms because of the differing requirements of specialists in the various fields of science and engineering. In some laboratories, such as those commonly used by computer scientists, computers (sometimes supercomputers) are used for either simulations or the analysis of data collected elsewhere. As an engineering lab, Instructors laboratories builds and test technological devices.

Scope of Work:

Monthly Balance Statement Reconciliation.
Reconciling the Balance Sheet is very important for a business; it confirms and ensures that everything on the Balance Sheet is accurate. Business owners need an accurate Balance Sheet to clearly understand the company’s financial position. It is critical for outside advisors such as bankers to evaluate the credit worthiness of the business. Every account on the Balance Sheet needs to be reconciled when an accounting period is being closed; this ensures accuracy of the data. Some of the most important accounts that need to be reconciled are the cash accounts, inventory, prepaid expenses, accounts receivable, and accrued liabilities.

(i) Reconciliation of Cash Book Balance
The bank balance should match what is currently in the accounting software with the difference of uncleared checks. If the two do not tie, the Driver Training Instructor cannot move forward with reconciling the Balance Sheet. The services of an accounting officer will then be required to Identify the discrepancy and to make sure everything that cleared the bank is recorded in the financial software. Any uncleared transactions more than 30 days old need to have an explanation from the Driver Training Instructor as to why it has not cleared the bank yet.

(ii) Reconciliation of Inventory (Training Aid, Books, Stationary, etc)
A Driver Training Instructor is required to perform an inventory count at the end of the accounting period. The physical inventory on hand should match the book balance. If there is discrepancy between the two, the physical count will take presidance and an inventory adjustment report will be made by the Accounting officer and further, identify what is causing the discrepancy. Possibly uncovering theft, fraud or abuse through this process.

(iii) Reconciliation of Prepaid Expenses
This is an asset account. It is used by the Accounting officer to defer the recognition of the expenses previously paid until the services/goods have been used. The procedure to reconciling this account is assuring that all the closing journal entries have been made and the balance at month end matches the prepaid expense schedule that is used to calculate the monthly expense.

(iv) Reconciliation of Accounts Receivable
This account is very important and determines how much money which should be collected and when. Driver Trainer Instructor must ensure that all the data in this account is accurate. The Accounting Officer will then find out if there are any invoices that need to be written off or need to be followed up with. Any item in this account that is above 90 days past due needs to have an explanation as to why it is 90 days past due.

(v) Reconciliation of accrued liability
This account is exactly the opposite of the Prepaid Expense account. This account holds a balance that is owed for services/goods that the business has used, but not yet paid for. Reconciling this account is fairly similar to the Prepaid Expense account. The Accounting Officer will then match the book balance to the balance that is on the scheduled used to calculate the monthly adjustment to this account.

Vehicle Maintanance
The Driver Training Instructor must ensure the vehicle availability meets all requests by capturing, scheduling, forecasting and surveying current user trends by maintaining knowledge, utilizing all vehicle information and client surveys to forecast new requirements.
