SUPERVISION RECEIVED AND EXERCISED
Receives general supervision or direction from assigned supervisory or management personnel. Exercises no direct supervision over staff. May provide technical and functional direction to lower-level staff.
Administrative Analyst I: This is the entry level class in the Administrative Analyst series. Initially under close supervision, incumbents with basic professional administrative support experience perform analytical and technical work within an assigned department. As experience is gained, assignments become more varied and are performed with greater independence. Positions at this level usually perform most of the duties required of the positions at the II level, but are not expected to function at the same skill level and usually exercise less independent discretion and judgment in matters related to work procedures and methods.
Administrative Analyst II: This is the fully competent class in the Administrative Analyst series. Incumbents develop and implement policies and procedures for a variety of projects and programs within an assigned department, including budget administration, contract administration, management analysis, and program evaluation. Incumbents support the work of departmental management staff by conducting day-to-day administrative support activities and by providing a professional-level resource for organizational, managerial, and operational analyses and studies. Incumbents are expected to have specific knowledge of program and functional areas of the County Administrator’s Office and Board of Supervisors and perform grant and contract administration. The work has technical and programmatic aspects requiring the interpretation and application of policies, procedures, and regulations and may involve frequent contact with the public. Positions at this level are distinguished from the I level by the performance of the full range of duties as assigned, working independently, and exercising a higher level of judgment and initiative. This class is distinguished from the Senior Administrative Analyst in that the latter may be responsible for technical and functional supervision of lower-level administrative support staff and is capable of performing the most complex duties assigned to the department.
