This dissertation aims to clarify the way that the Puzriš-Dagan organization functioned, by providing a comprehensive study of its organization, administrative practices and the written documentation dating to the reign of Amar-Suen, the third king of the Third Dynasty of Ur (ca. 2112-2004 BC). This study depends on the most abundant Sumerian textual data hitherto, which constitute a promising source for Assyriological studies regarding the understanding of the political, socio-economic, and religious history of the Ancient Near East. By a statistical analysis of text formulary and written documentation, this thesis also contributes to the understanding of ancient Mesopotamian bookkeeping.
