The Basque Government's electronic office, at https://euskadi.net, is up and running as of today and is the website that provides secure and easy access to the information and procedures of the Administration. Its construction has been a very important milestone in its Public Innovation Plan, as it is the fundamental component underpinning all the electronic services that the Government offers the general public. It is also one of the milestones towards full compliance of Act 11/2007, of 22 June, concerning Electronic Access of Citizens to Public Services.
If the electronic office had to be summed up in just two words, they would be access and confidence. It facilitates access to the BAC electronic services in a secure environment where you can carry out every operation with total confidence.

Legislation - Electronic Office
The setting up of the electronic office of the Public Administration of the Basque Autonomous Community is in keeping with the legal requirements envisaged in Act 11/2207, of 22 June, concerning Electronic Access of Citizens to Public Services (LAECSP). The legislation lays down the need to define an electronic access point where contact can be established with the citizens with full guarantees regarding legal protection, accessibility, availability and responsibility. In the Second Heading, which regulates the legal standing of electronic administration, Chapter One considers the electronic office as an electronic directorate whose management and administration is entrusted to a Public Authority operating with full liability regarding the accuracy, completeness and currency of the information and service which can be accessed through the site.
Each Administration establishes the instruments to set up its electronic office. Thus, the Basque Government is going to set out in the Electronic Administration Decree, which is pending authorisation, how to design its office in order to guarantee the principles of official publication, liability, quality, security, availability and accessibility. Until the aforementioned Decree is published, the electronic office will be governed by Decree 232/2007, of 18 December, which regulates the use of remote control, IT and electronic resources in administrative procedures.
The current legislation is set out in:
- Act 11/2007 of 22 June, concerning Electronic Access of Citizens to Public Services (LAECSP).
- Decree 232/2007, of 18 December, which regulates the use of remote control, IT and electronic resources in administrative procedures.
