The function of the Agribusiness Development Corporation (ADC or corporation) is to spearhead the State’s efforts to transition the local agricultural industry from historical large monocrop plantation farming to modern diversified farming. ADC is granted broad powers to accomplish this mandate and is governed by an appointed eleven-member board of directors. Its daily operations are overseen by an executive director appointed by the board, and a small staff. ADC is project-driven, operating with less repetitive activities, and instead focusing on and adapting to the needs of each project. Its projects include acquisition of former pineapple and sugar lands and conversion of those lands into diversified crops, planning and constructing irrigation systems from dams and reservoirs to distribution lines for ground and surface water, developing new or repowering old plantation power plants for use by its farmers, developing and constructing much-needed accessory agricultural improvements such as packing, processing, and possibly distribution facilities, promoting the increase in the number of active farmers and encouraging the development of farm worker housing. To address farm losses resulting from climate change and concerns over excess use of chemicals and pesticides, ADC is also involved in more modern farming methods, such as greenhouse, hothouse, and climate-controlled farming.
The primary purpose of the ADC General Accounting Clerk is to provide fiscal support services to ADC, specifically accounts receivables, collections, accounts payables and purchasing/procurement. It will also provide general clerical support, as needed.
