Division of Administration
Unique among government departments, the Division of Administration serves the people of Louisiana mainly by providing essential services to the whole of state government. As provided in Title 39 of the Louisiana Revised Statutes, "The functions of the Division of Administration shall comprise all administrative functions of the state in relation to the duties outlined in law." To accomplish these functions, the Division of Administration is comprised of 25 sections, some functioning as control-oriented entities and others as service-oriented entities.

As the central management and administrative support agency for the state of Louisiana, the Division is headed by the Commissioner of Administration, Kristy Nichols, and is comprised of three programs: Executive Administration; Community Development and Block Grant; and Auxiliary. The Commissioner oversees and coordinates the Division's 25 sections (listed below), which perform legislatively-mandated and other required functions of state government. In addition, the Division of Administration provides supervisory functions for management and budgets of all state departments.
