This article is about the institution. You may be looking for the actual location.

The Office of the Chief of State or Chief of State's Office, consisted of various aides, staff, and government organizations directly subordinate to the Chief of State of the Galactic Alliance. In this capacity, the Office served as the executive branch of the Galactic Alliance. The term was also used, though rarely so, as a description for the position and institution of the Chief of State.

The Office of the Chief of State was lead by the Chief of State with the Chief of Staff serving as an administrative assistant. Up until the Swarm War the Office was lead by the High Council under the direction of the Chief of State. However, after the conclusion of the war the High Council was discontinued and the Galactic Alliance Advisory Council became the chief advising organ of the Chief of State's Office. The Office included the Galactic Alliance bureaucracy such as the Department of Justice and the Galactic Alliance Treasury, as well as military and security forces such as the Galactic Alliance Defense Force and Galactic Alliance Security.



The Office of the Chief of State was headed by the Chief of State of the Galactic Alliance.[1] The Chief of Staff served as an administrative assistant to the Chief of State.[5]

  11. It is established in Legacy of the Force: Bloodlines that the Coruscant Security Force answers to the Chief of States Office. In Legacy of the Force: Sacrifice it is established that the CSF responds to the Department of Public Protection and that they provide bodyguard protection for the Chief of State. They are temporarily relieved of this duty by the Galactic Alliance Guard. Fate of the Jedi: Backlash confirmed the CSF continued to protect the Chief of State. However other novels suggest that this duty was also performed by Galactic Alliance Security. Their official takeover of the Chief of State's security was confirmed in Vortex.
