The unit is comprised of officers, civilians and soldiers working side by side to implement policy in coordination with the ministries of Israel. The unit is headed by a Major General, and derives its  authority from the IDF Central Command.

In order to fulfil its mission, the Civil Administration works on areas ranging from transportation to infrastructure to water, agriculture, electricity, economy, health and more.
