The Justice Administrative Commission (JAC), created in 1965, provides administrative services on behalf of 49 judicial related offices (JROs).

Currently, the JAC administratively serves 20 Offices of State Attorney, 20 Offices of Public Defender, 5 Offices of Criminal Conflict and Civil Regional Counsel, 3 Offices of Capital Collateral Regional Counsel, and the Statewide Guardian ad Litem Program. Services provided are primarily in the areas of accounting, budget, financial services, and human resources. While the JAC administratively serves these JROs, the JAC does not supervise, direct, or control the JROs it serves.

The JAC also provides compliance and financial review of billings for services provided by private court-appointed attorneys representing indigent persons and associated due process vendors.

The Commission is comprised of two State Attorneys, appointed by the President of the Florida Prosecuting Attorneys Association, and two Public Defenders, appointed by the President of the Florida Public Defender Association. The Commission appoints an Executive Director, who is charged with oversight of necessary staff to efficiently and effectively carry out the JAC's duties.
