Summary/Abstract: The article examines the development of central executive authorities with a rank below minister. In 1998 the legislature passed the Administration Act, which brought into Art. 19 (4) the hierarchy of these bodies. This article examines the legislative and administrative experience, the constitution of the various agencies, their characteristics and powers. Particular attention is given to those administrative structures, which differ significantly from the general pattern of the Administration Act – State Agency “National Security”, Bulgarian Agency for Food Safety, National Revenue Agency, Executive Agency “Road Infrastructure” and others. Separately are examined the legal status of governing bodies and the changes that the legislature made in this area. Special attention is paid to the practice of the Constitutional Court and the Supreme Administrative Court.
