We are also a public service authority and can hear appeals.
The County Administrative Board is the most versatile of Sweden’s authorities; our issues and our competence cover the entire social span. We have lawyers, biologists, architects, foresters, engineers, public relations officers, archaeologists, veterinarians, sociologists, economists and many others.
We are an important link between the people and the municipal authorities on the one hand and the government, parliament and central authorities on the other.
Our aims are to provide good service with open accountability that is based on the rule of law. Changes in society are resulting in increasing demands for accountability and accessibility.
The County Administrative Board are developing services that help private persons and organisations to carry out their tasks regardless of time and place.
