Associate Director: The Associate Director level acts with full-delegated authority as Director. As the Unit Administrator directs the operational, financial, and personnel functions of the unit including fiscal planning and management and strategic planning, hiring, firing, grievances and conflict resolutions, employee evaluations. The majority of support staff report directly to this level. The Associate Director level is the senior level and direct successor to the Unit's Appointing Authority in their absence.
Assistant Director: The Assistant Director assists the Unit Administrator with the operational, financial, and personnel functions of the unit or directs a specified entity within the unit.
In a Unit with both an Associate Director and Assistant Director level, the Associate Director level is the level with a much broader scope of responsibility and is called upon to "act as Director with full decision-making authority in their absence." In a Unit with only one level (either an Associate Director or an Assistant Director), whichever level is present may be called on to temporarily "act on behalf of Director in their absence, as directed."
