Boverket is organised in four departments: two Operations Departments, the Analysis Department and the Administrative Department.

The Operations Departments are fulfilling authority-related responsibilities regarding the use of land, water and nature resources; the town and country planning; building construction and management of the built environment; and administration of related public subsidies.

The Analysis Department is dealing with the contemporary development of the housing market and living conditions. The analyses are made from a broad perspective on planning, building and housing.

The Administrative Department is in charge of human resources, economy, IT and information.
