The functions you describe all sound about right to me for a
senior-grade, i.e., "lead," "principal," or
"whatever-high-level-but-not-managment-term-you-prefer" systems analyst.

It sounds to me as if it's open season at that recruiting firm, and the
first person to get a resume in the door of the client wins the gold
