Is this level of responsibility normal for a staff?

I currently am a staff in an IT audit position.

I feel sometimes like I am acting staff, senior, and manager on my engagements, with responsibilities including:

Coordinating documentation requests and meetings with the client.
Documenting evidence provided by the client.
Managing the budget.

Is this typical?
