U.A.D. Unauthorized Deductions

Question to the US CPAs: I am looking at position for a general accountant with a large manufacturing co. The job posting states: "must have the knowledge of U.A.D. (Unauthorized deductions). Duties
include matching invoices, solving problems, etc."
I did a google on UAD and didn't get anything related to accounting on the first 4 pages. I googled unauthorized deductions and got varying hits. It relates to deductions on HB-1 employees. Another related to deductions against vendor invoices. My background is in hospitality accounting and I have never encountered what is being mentioned.
If anyone had to guess, would it be the HB-1 employees or against vendor invoices? Thanks in advance for your help.

My guess would be "vendor invoices" but a job description for this should include more common terminology for accounts payables such as purchase orders, requisitions, authorizations, payments, etc.

Maybe it's an abbreviation used by the employer for some reason. UnAuthorized Deductions? UnAuthorized Disbursements?
Try Google searching for "Accounting Terminology". Then search the sites and see what you might find.
