from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The former Defense Division I in Kiel

The military area administrations (WBV) were, as subordinate agencies of the territorial defense administration directly subordinate to the Federal Ministry of Defense , responsible for all administrative tasks within their area, unless special authorities were created for certain tasks. As part of the realignment of the Bundeswehr, these were dissolved on June 30, 2013. The tasks of the previous military area administrations were largely transferred to the two new authorities, the Federal Office for Personnel Management of the Bundeswehr and the Federal Office for Infrastructure, Environmental Protection and Services of the Bundeswehr . The fee system, however, was outsourced from the defense administration. It was

  • the Federal Office of Administration (division of the Federal Ministry of the Interior; for active employees) and
  • the General Customs Directorate (division of the Federal Ministry of Finance; for beneficiaries)


After seven military area administrations (I-VII) had existed by 2001, there were only four left by June 2013:

The defense area administrations u. a. responsible for

  • the selection, recruitment and personnel management of civil servants and employees (department ZA),
  • the determination, calculation, arrangement and accounting of the salaries of soldiers and civil servants as well as the remuneration of employees and the calculation, determination and granting of subsidies for federal employees . The West and South Military District Administrations also handle the service provision for professional soldiers and civil servants, the provision for surviving dependents and the provision for the injured within the scope of the Soldiers Supply Act (PA department).
  • the processing of non-contractual damages matters such as accidents involving army vehicles or recoveries for damage to property or injury to Bundeswehr military personnel (department WR, WR Department 6).
  • The duties of a trade supervisory office were carried out by the department WR 7, which is not subject to instructions.

In other areas, such as military substitute systems , occupational health and safety , property management or in the area of ​​procurement and catering, the military area administrations carried out the technical and service supervision of the subordinate local authorities, in particular the Bundeswehr service centers and district defense replacement offices (departments WR and IUW).
