One of the footnotes for the Job description on the SBMJOB command in
Appendix D of the Security Reference manual is: "(9) Both the user
submitting the job and the user profile under which the job will run are
checked for authority to the referenced object." When authority of the user
submitting the job is checked adopted authority and any authority from
their current group profiles are used. But when the authority of the user
profile under which the job will run is checked adopted authority and
authority from their group profiles is not used. So USERC will need
authority to the job description when it is the user profile under which
the submitted job will run.

I hope this helps.
