German term or phrase: Verbandsgemeineverwaltung
Could this be a typo, and actually mean Verbandsgemeindeverwaltung? Gemeinderverwaltung is local government or municipal administration, but how does Verband come into it?

This comes from a CV that I am currently translating for a guy who was busy "Einführung NetWare for SAA bei einer Verbandsgemeineverwaltung in Bad Sobernheim"

Thanks very much,

Joanne
