The following departments are under the responsibility of the ministry:

The ministry also manages the following institutions:

The National Service Programme (Program Khidmat Bakti Negara, PKBN) is managed by the ministry and it is the voluntary military national service of Brunei.

The Sports School (Sekolah Sukan) was formerly under the responsibility of the ministry but has since been transferred to the Ministry of Education under the Department of Schools.[3] It is the sole sports school in the country.
