Military troops and organizations are able to execute their tasks relying on their personnel of proper size. Ensuring of the number of soldiers for troops are the tasks of the military administration. These tasks have changed dramatically over the past two decades in line with social expectations and legislative changes. As a result of political-security and economic changes in 2004 Parliament decided to suspend the military service and to transform the Hungarian Defence Forces into a professional army. These changes have resulted in fundamental transformations in the structure of the Hungarian Defence Forces. Drafting was replaced by recruiting. At this time, the structure and tasks of the military administration also changed therefore, nowadays due to the lack of experience, the new members of the military administration staff would not be capable of performing every part of tasks related to the conscription at the same high level and speed as the personnel of the augmentation commands used to be before 2004. As these personnel are overwhelmed by the tasks of peacetime (such as recruitment and welfare service) they do not have as many opportunities to practice the tasks of conscription as they would like to. The purpose of this study is to present these changes, to analyse their results, highlight how to enhance the effectivity of the exercises whose aim is to practice the tasks of conscription, and last but not least, to point out that the importance of the role of military administration has not changed.
