Fritz Kempf - Jasta B in WW1, Luftgaukommando VII in WW2

Friedrich Wilhelm Herrmann Kempf (9 May 1894 - 2 Sep 1966) served in several aviation units during Great War, including Jasta Boelcke, scoring 4 victories.
In WW2 he achieved rank of Oberstingenieur and in January 1945 was present at Stab of Luftgaukommando VII.
He was promoted to this rank in March 1942, the news was mentioned in several military and aviation magazines.

Can someone help me to explain me purpose of Oberstingenieur in Luftgau structure?

So far I have found following tasks Kempf was performing: Technischer Berater des Befehlshabers, Steuerung der Fliegerhorstwerften, Instandhaltung von Flugzeugen und Flugmotoren etc., Nachschub von fliegerischen Geräten und Ersatzteilen für Frontverbände und Werften.
