Mission, vision and values


Our mission stems from our commitment to people.

We want to build a modern, 21st century public administration that provides inclusive, efficient public services based on excellence and ensures a new, more strategic governance model with a monitoring system that allows for greater accountability.

To this end, we want to have the voice of citizens in the development of public policies, to ensure that these policies fulfil the purpose for which they were designed and that all public employees are recognised as a reference point for all the values that the administration represents.


Our action is governed by the principles of transparency in public activity, publicity, ethical management, accountability, equal treatment and opportunities and professionalism in the exercise of our functions in order to contribute to a fairer, more peaceful and inclusive administration and society.
