Except for Vienna, the administration of properties in civilian use is entrusted to the Governor (Landeshauptmann) of the province, in which the property is situated, who exercises this delegated power (indirect federal administration) through local Federal Buildings Administration agencies (FBA-I). The Federal Office of Public Works of Vienna is part of the Federal Building Administration for Vienna, Lower Austria and Burgenland, which is responsible for office buildings, school and theatre buildings, as well as the Burghauptmannschaft in Vienna (responsible for structural alterations of the Imperial Palace and other historical buildings) and the Federal Administration of Movables. The Federal Building Administration II, with the central offices of Graz, Linz-Salzburg, Innsbruck and Klagenfurt, is mainly responsible for the administration of military buildings in the various provinces. In the course of privatisation the Bundesimmobiliengesellschaft was founded in 1992.
