The term public administration in the Albanian legal system identifies the group of state administration bodies / public entities that contribute to the performance and functioning of state administration in matters of its competencies.

The provision for the first time defined by the bodies that are part of the public administration is Article 3 of the Code of Administrative Procedure, 1999, repealed by the new Administrative Procedure Code, which provides in Article 3, point 6, “the public organ” bodies that are part of the public administration are those exercising administrative functions. The new Code of Administrative Procedures shall designate as a public administrative body any central administration body, local authority, law enforcement authorities, as long as they perform administrative functions, public entities and any natural or legal person who has been given by law, statute or any other form provided by the legislation in force, the right to exercise administrative functions. All public bodies that do not exercise administrative functions are excluded from this definition.
