Duties Description Program Aide performs lower level professional assignments that require specific program knowledge and closely resemble those typically performed by professional staff in the same organization. Assignments are characterized by the application of clear guidelines or precedents, which require basic analysis, review, and decision-making. These duties are distinct from the record-keeping, tracking, office management, and information gathering activities done by Secretaries 1 and 2. Program Aides do not perform a mix of professional duties and secretarial duties, such as distributing incoming correspondence, routing telephone calls, greeting visitors, responding to general questions, or maintaining calendars.

Clerical activities are not characteristic of positions in this class. Any clerical duties performed are incidental and directly related to the professional-level program administrative responsibilities of the organization. The performance of, or the supervision of, clerical work associated with various Office Assistant classes is not characteristic of this title.
