The lecture is focused on the relationship between state administration, self-government and so-called other public administration. The author points out that on the one hand, from a theoretical meaning public administration consists of three relatively independent components which are built especially in the case of selfgovernment on the principle of decentralization. On the other hand state administration maintains its dominant position. The influence of state to the components of public administration mentioned above is demonstrated in three areas. The first area is devoted to the specifics of the position of central state administration bodies in relation not only to the government but also to the self-government and other public administration. Within the second area the author points out concrete interferences of the state to the activities of self-government and other public administration through the bodies of state administration. In the third area, the author analyzes damoage compensation for the performance of public administration by Act No. 514/2003 Coll. on liability for damage caused by performing of public power and amending certain acts as amended. The lecture is completed with the conclusion in which the views and proposals of the author are formulated.
