Security and Administration Committees

   (SACs)
   During the Revolutionary Council period (1962-1973), administrative bodies whose chairmen were military officers, found on the state/ division, township, and ward/village tract levels of local and regional administration. SACs were placed in a hierarchy below the Security and Administration Central Committee, which was directly responsible to the Revolutionary Council chaired by General Ne Win. This "transitional," military-dominated governmental structure anticipated the hierarchy of Law and Order Councils (after 1997, Peace and Development Councils) established after the State Law and Order Restoration Council seized power in September 1988.
