This is the full journey-level class in the professional Administrative Services Analyst series.

This class can be distinguished from the entry-level class of Associate Administrative Services Analyst because assignments at that level are less difficult and complex than those assigned to an Administrative Services Analyst, and are performed under greater supervision and have less authority to act. An Associate Administrative Services Analyst performs basic and routine analytical assignments that may be repetitive and do not require extensive, in-depth analysis.
