The IT project administrator contributes essential administrative support to coordinate a technical team, typically under the direction of a project manager or leader. Duties of a project administrator include all aspects of facilitating a project: scheduling meeting times and locations, taking meeting minutes, developing presentations, and arranging training for project staff. In addition, the project administrator participates in budget administration, providing analysis, keeping records, and forecasting financial performance. IT project administrators may work closely with other corporate departments, such as HR and legal.
IT project administration brings together business administration and technical knowledge. A bachelor's degree in business or management information systems offers the best foundation for a project administrator career. It's also possible to start a career with a two-year information technology degree and some business experience. With additional training such as a Project Management Professional (PMP) certification or an MBA in information systems, administrators can advance into a project manager role.
