This tag was previously used for "a place where public administration is located, for example the complaints office, public health fund or employment-centre."

There are two approved tags which are more commonly used for this purpose: office=government + government=* for most administrative government offices, or amenity=townhall for the primary location of a municipal government such as a city hall, town hall or village hall.

There are also tags for places with other kind of administration: office=religion, office=association etc.
