The NAB is a federal administrative body under the control of the Government of Pakistan, and its responsibilities include preventing corruption, educating the public, and enforcing anti-corruption laws. The NAB has five regional offices spread across four provinces and its main office in the federal capital. The regional offices handle the actual investigation work, whereas the headquarters office only handles policy and monitoring tasks. Four core divisions—Operations, Prosecution, Awareness and Prevention, and Human Resource and Finance Divisions—are responsible for carrying out the primary duties of the NAB.

In addition to enforcing its operations against economic terrorism and financial crimes, the NAB is empowered to engage in any necessary preventative and awareness campaigns using any means. Its scope of operations has grown and been enlarged since Pervez Musharraf created it on November 16, 1999.
