The benefits of comparative study of different legal institutions have been identified by legal experts. Although Iranian administrative law has been largely influenced by the French legal system, there have been few comparative studies on Arab countries whose legal systems are also modeled on French law. Comparative-law research on administrative contracts is still mainly focused on comparing French and Iranian legal systems. Despite difficulties in accessing primary sources, the authors have undertaken a comparative study of administrative contracts in the legal systems of Jordan and Egypt. Given the close relationship between Iranian, Egyptian and Jordanian legal systems on the one hand, and the continental origins of Jordanian and Egyptian systems on the other, the reasons for conducting this research are obvious. The purpose of the paper is to identify the nature and different types of administrative contracts in Egypt and Jordan as well as different regimes for the application of such contracts. Administrative contracts in Egyptian and Jordanian legal systems,  despite  their similarities, have subtle differences in terms of execution and dispute settlement that are noteworthy .The method used in this paper is a descriptive-analytical.
