The County Administrator and the Administration Department staff coordinate and perform strategic planning for the overall mission of the County. The department was created in 1979 to bring a professional management to county government which is unique for counties in Iowa, but not for cities. Scott County has been a recognized member of the International City Management Association since 1983.

The Administration Department serves as the principal adviser to the Board and acts as a liaison between the Board and other county departments. The department also represents the Board of Supervisors in dealings with other governmental agencies. The County Administrator supervises the actions of all appointed department heads and ensures that whenever possible, departments work together to provide the best possible service to the residents of Scott County.
