The Office of the President of the Republic of the Union of Myanmar (Burmese: ပြည်ထောင်စုသမ္မတမြန်မာနိုင်ငံတော် နိုင်ငံတော်သမ္မတရုံး) is a ministry-level body that serves the President of Myanmar. Since the 2021 Myanmar coup d'état, the position has remained vacant.
Currently, the Office of the President was renamed as Office of the State Administration Council Chairman and led by permanent Secretary, Zaw Than Thin.
On 4 September 2012, the Pyidaungsu Hluttaw approved an expansion of the office from two ministries into six to improve efficiencies on ongoing peace processes, preparations for the 2013 Southeast Asian Games and Burma's hosting of the 2014 ASEAN Summit. On 9 January 2013 Thein Sein appointed deputy Minister of Information Ye Htut as his office's first official spokesperson. The responsibility had been previously handled by Zaw Htay, the office's director. The office has since been reduced to one ministry under President Htin Kyaw. After President Htin Kyaw, Win Myint served as the President of Myanmar.
From 2016 to 2021, the State Counsellor is Aung San Suu Kyi. She also served as Minister of Foreign Affairs. She played a vital role in Myanmar's transition from military junta to partial democracy in the 2010s and won the 2020 elections but on 1 February 2021, she was detained by the military during the 2021 Myanmar coup d'état.
After the coup, SAC renamed the office as the Office of the State Administration Council Chairman.
