GENERAL DESCRIPTION OF CLASS
The ADMINISTRATIVE PROGRAM SPECIALIST assists a program manager or administrator in the ongoing direction of an institution program or operation or performs administrative research, analysis, and/or evaluation in support of an institution program or operation. Work at this level requires a comprehensive knowledge of the program or operational area.
This is the second level of a two-level series. This class is distinguished from the lower level by the added responsibility for the interpretation of laws, rules, policies, and procedures, and for applying these interpretations to specific, often nonroutine situations. At this level there is responsibility for assisting a manager or administrator with monitoring, auditing, and/or directing a program or operation, and may include conducting administrative projects or studies requiring research, analysis, evaluation, and interpretation.
Allocation of positions to this class will depend on the total work performed.
RELATIONSHIPS WITH OTHERS
Employees in this class communicate on a regular basis with individuals and groups at all levels of the institution and OSSHE, as well as the general public to provide or request information, respond to questions, resolve and/or negotiate solutions to problems, and interpret laws, rules, regulations and institution policies and procedures.
Employees meet regularly with institution management to make presentations and participate in discussions to develop goals, plans, and solutions to problems.
Employees in this class work with a high degree of independence and receive general supervision from a program coordinator, program manager or administrator who assigns the work and reviews the work periodically through informal conferences or as problems occur. Completed work is reviewed as needed for accuracy, adherence to deadlines, and conformance to applicable laws, rules, policies procedures, and other guidelines.
Positions are found in campus programs and operational areas throughout the Oregon State System of Higher Education.
One year of postsecondary education may be substituted for up to one year of the experience.
