DISTINGUISHING CHARACTERISTICS

Project Manager I
This is the entry-level class in the Project Manager series. This class is distinguished from the journey level by the performance of the more routine tasks and duties assigned to positions within this series. Employees at this level are not expected to perform with the same independence of direction and judgment on matters allocated to the journey level. Since this is an entry-level class, employees may have limited related work experience. Employees work under general supervision while learning job tasks.

Project Manager II
This is the full journey-level class within the Project Manager series. This class is distinguished from Project Manager I by the assignment of the full range of duties. Employees at this level receive only occasional instruction or assistance as new or unusual situations arise and are fully aware of the operating procedures and policies within the work unit. Positions in this class are flexibly staffed and are normally filled by advancement from the entry level.
This class is distinguished from the Senior Project Manager in that the latter performs the most difficult and complex project management assignments and exercises direct supervision over lower level professional, technical, and clerical staff.
