- This is the full journey-level class in the professional Administrative Services Analyst series. At this level, incumbents use substantial independent judgment to make decisions on work issues, including those that are unusual or fall outside of established parameters. Incumbents often perform duties that are highly specialized to the work unit, emphasizing one or more of the following functional areas: general and administrative support, fiscal and contract management, program analysis and compliance, staff development and training, and/or information systems support. Consequently, specialized recruitments may be held to attract applicants by functional area.
- 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.
