The administration department includes the office of the mayor, the city administrator, human resources and the city attorney.

In 1971, Pullman became a non-chartered code city under the Mayor-Council form of government. The city has an elected mayor with an elected seven-member council and an appointed administrative officer--the city supervisor.

The mayor, elected at large, serves as the chief executive officer of the city. The position is part-time.

The city administrator, under the mayor's direction, oversees all city daily operations, implements city policy direction established by the mayor and city council, and manages daily operations of the city to ensure that city services are effectively and efficiently provided. The city supervisor serves as chief advisor to the mayor and city council, makes reports and recommendations to the city council and ensures that city policies are implemented.

The human resource manager is responsible for the recruitment, testing, and evaluation process of all applicants for both civil service and non-civil service positions within city government.

The city attorney is responsible for providing legal counsel to city officials, departments, commissions, and boards.  The city attorney also prepares legal documents, ordinances, and resolutions pertaining to city business.
