The ar­eas of ac­tion of the Fed­er­al Of­fice of Ad­min­is­tra­tion

As the cen­tral ser­vice provider of the Fed­er­al Gov­ern­ment, the Fed­er­al Of­fice of Ad­min­is­tra­tion (Bun­desver­wal­tungsamt, BVA) sees it­self as a part­ner of au­thor­i­ties, as­so­ci­a­tions, and many cit­i­zens. It is re­spon­si­ble for Ger­man schools abroad, or­ga­nizes the man­age­ment of grants in ar­eas like the pro­mo­tion of sport, cul­ture, youth and so­cial mat­ters, grants ed­u­ca­tion­al loans, col­lects loans un­der the Fed­er­al Stu­dent Aid Law and pro­vides train­ing for the in­ter­me­di­ate ad­min­is­tra­tion ser­vice at fed­er­al lev­el.

Since its foun­da­tion, the Fed­er­al Of­fice of Ad­min­is­tra­tion has been work­ing on tasks con­cern­ing pub­lic se­cu­ri­ty and the law of cit­i­zen­ship. The BVA op­er­ates sev­er­al reg­is­ters like the Cen­tral Reg­is­ter of For­eign­ers, is es­sen­tial­ly in­volved in visa pro­ce­dures on be­half of the Fed­er­al For­eign Of­fice with sev­er­al mil­lions of re­quests a year, and is the na­tion­al Au­thor­i­ty for the Grant of Au­tho­riza­tion Cer­tifi­cates in the frame­work of the new iden­ti­ty card.

The fol­low­ing pages give you a de­tailed view on the wide range of is­sues of the Fed­er­al Of­fice of Ad­min­is­tra­tion, that takes up more than 150 dif­fer­ent tasks for the fed­er­al min­istries and their de­part­ments.
