Program Officers are distinguished from Administrative Assistants in that they have direct accountability for the management of their program area and responsibility and authority to take action and make decisions within the program area, and a preponderance of time is spent on non-clerical duties. The focus of the work of Program Officers is on organization, administration and evaluation of a complex sequence of steps required to provide services to a specific clientele or programmatic area. Administrative Assistants prepare and maintain records, forms and other program related documentation in support of professional staff; follow established policy, procedures and direction of professional staff. In some instances they may be delegated operational responsibility for certain aspects of a program; however, the decision-making and authority to take action is the responsibility of the Program Officer.
