What is it

It is a network of Basque public institutions (government and public enterprises) engaged in the pursuit of Excellence in management. In 2002, with the collaboration of EUSKALIT, Basque Foundation for Excellence, they began their joint activities to share and disseminate good management practices, exchange of documentation of work in an open way, inviting managers from other public and private organizations to share experiences and to organise together public events to disseminate these developments to other public organizations.
