Naypyidaw Council (Burmese: နေပြည်တော်ကောင်စီ, also spelt Nay Pyi Taw Council) is the executive body under the President of Myanmar that administers Naypyidaw Union Territory.[1]

The Council is formed by the President, who appoints members based on constitutional requirements.[1] The President must nominate both civilian and Armed Services personnel into the Council membership.[1] The Council, which is headed by a Chairperson, reports directly to the President.[1] The Constitution also holds that the Naypyidaw Council shares offices with the Ministry of Home Affairs' General Administration Department (GAD), and that the head of GAD serves as an ex-officio secretary of the Naypyidaw Council.[1]
