County Administrative Board

The County Administrative Board is the representative of the National Government at the regional level. We are responsible for ensuring that decisions from Parliament and the Government are implemented in the county and we coordinate government activities.

The County Administrative Board has a broad area of responsibility. We work on issues concerning the environment, nature, the labour market, competence sourcing, the business community, social development, animal health and welfare, gender equality, integration, transport, infrastructure and housing. Our task is to coordinate these and other areas of public responsibility to achieve efficient solutions for a sustainable development.

The County Administrative Board also has the task of ensuring that the county’s citizens receive the level of service the Government has decided on, that municipalities and companies comply with laws and other regulations and that nationwide objectives adopted by the Government are achieved in the County of Västernorrland.
