Regional state administrative agencies are regional administrative organisations of the state of Finland. The six agencies took over some of the tasks of the earlier Provinces of Finland, which were abolished in 2010. The duties mostly consist of basic public services and legal permits. The seventh agency in the autonomous Åland Islands is called the State Department of Åland.
The agencies themselves do not constitute a subdivision of Finland (ISO 3166-2:FI), and the first-level subdivisions are the Regions of Finland. Other important regional state agencies are the Centres for Economic Development, Transport and the Environment (ely-keskus).
