The Administrative Analyst/Specialist is a broad classification with four position skill levels. It is designed for positions covering a wide range of general and/or specialized administrative responsibilities in support of a program and/or organizational unit. The majority of work is administrative and analytical in nature with duties covering operational, policy and program research, analysis, reporting, and evaluation for the effective development and administration of programs or improvements to operational policies and procedures. Incumbents may also provide program administration or leadership. Responsibilities may include overseeing day-to-day administrative operations and providing lead work direction to others.
Position Skill Level - Non-Exempt - Incumbents in positions at this level serve primarily as individual contributors providing day-to-day administration of a program, and/or performing a variety of administrative and technical duties requiring knowledge of methods and procedures in support of an organizational unit. Administrative and analytical work relates primarily to operations and procedures.
Positions in this classification are distinguished by the level and scope of the administrative, analytical, and development responsibilities which require a more extensive and thorough knowledge of internal policies and procedures, and often require a professional foundation in applicable administrative theories, practices and procedures, or in a particular administrative or program specialty. Incumbents are often individual contributors, though the full scope of their duties may include providing lead work direction to others in the organizational unit. Unlike the administrative support series, positions in the first level of this classification are not primarily responsible for leading or coordinating the clerical operations or support function for an organizational unit. In contrast, they are directly responsible for or participate in program administration or perform specialized or general duties related to the overall administrative operations of an organizational unit. Administrative operations include the range of activities related to directing the policy and affairs of an organizational unit such as fiscal and budgetary standards.
