WHAT WE DO AT BISCAYTIK
The BiscayTIK Foundation is a project of international importance that has three main goals:
- To promote the use of the ICTs in Municipal Administration and bring Local Authorities closer to citizens through the use of the Internet.
- To work closely with the companies in Biscay on projects related to the ICTs and Local Government, generating wealth and making Biscay an international benchmark in this field.
- To bring the New Technologies to the inhabitants of Biscay so that the province can rival the most technologically advanced societies.
Since it started back in 2008, 116 of the Public Administrations have joined the project. 105 of them already have a website running and on 100 of those citizens can fully carry out administrative procedures online.
Over 2,000 council workers use the application on a day-to-day basis. According to the latest data from 2015, the number of certificates issued was over one million; and over 13,000 of them were issued online without the citizens needing to go to council offices.
