This is the advanced journey level class within the Administrative Services Officer series. Employees in this job class perform more difficult and responsible types of duties assigned to classes within this series. Employees at this level are required to be fully trained in all policies, procedures, and operations related to assigned areas of responsibility. Employees in this class are typically assigned to manage budget, fiscal/accounting, and other administrative services operations, programs, and activities in departments and play a leading role in the departmental planning discussions related to assigned area of responsibility. Work assignments are typically given as broad, conceptual ideas and directives and incumbents are accountable for overall results and responsible for developing guidelines, action plans, and methods to produce deliverables on time and within budget.
The Senior Administrative Services Officer is distinguished from the Administrative Services Officer by the size of the department to which assigned, size and complexity of the budget and scope of responsibility. While the preponderance of time is spent performing hands-on accounting/fiscal support work for the assigned department/division at the journey level, employees at the Senior level spend the majority of time planning, supervising, directing, and reviewing the work of others.
The Senior Administrative Services Officer is further distinguished from the Administrative and Fiscal Operations Manager in that the latter has overall management responsibility for budgetary, fiscal, and other administrative services operations of a large, multi-divisional department and manages assigned areas of responsibility through lower-levels of professional, supervisory, and/or mid-management positions.
Receives direction from a department head or his/her designee.
