PUBLIC BUSINESS SECTOR

Institutional greeting

The CPEN- Public Business Corporation of Navarra was born in 2009 with a view to achieving a balanced and sustainable public business sector in Navarra, which may serve as an element of transfer of values, which promotes the economic development of the Regional Community and enables the implementation of the policies of the various departments of the Government of Navarra.


After these years of effort and sacrifice, the public companies of the Government of Navarra have consolidated their indispensable role in the generation of wealth for the Regional Community, extending the reach of the public service that the various departments of the Administration provide day-to-day. All of this with a human team composed of more than 1,200 people with an extensive and varied range of profiles who, in addition, are the strongest pillar.


Looking to the future, many are the challenges ahead of CPEN but all will work, in addition, to promote public companies in order to be socially acknowledged based on their work, professionalism of staff and work excellence.


The Government of Navarra is proud of its public business sector, which it will continue to support along this track so it remains a sound, balanced and sustainable management model.

Who we are

In compliance with the provisions of Act 8/2009 of 18 June, Public Business Corporation of Navarra, S.L.U. (CPEN) was established on 4 of November of 2009 with the mission of being the sole instrument unit of the organisation and rationalisation of a substantial part of the wealth of the Regional Community of Navarra, such as the public companies primarily.


On 18 January 2010 the Government of Navarra approves the transfer to CPEN all its shareholdings held in companies until that time, whereby the latter becomes the parent company of a major public business sector. Since then, as a result of the search for optimisation, effectiveness and efficiency, the number of public companies has been reduced from a total of 39 (including CPEN) to the 16 now existing.


Organisation chart

The CPEN workforce is made up of 11 people, whose main functions are advice and technical assistance to the other public corporations of the Government of Navarra in the following areas: procurement, investments and contracts; communication; financial; legal and human resources.


Currently, the coordination and representation of the company and the financial management are exercised by the same person and two of the human resources staff are part-time.

The first report published by CPEN attempted to transmit to the Navarra society and businesses the major milestones undertaken in the year 2014 by the public companies. Who we are, what we do, how and why we do it, in both economic and social terms.


We understand that it is not enough just to defend the work done by public companies, but transparency and accountability are key factors, and the companies need to be sustainable and continue creating value for society and business.


Our goal is not just to convey what we are and what we do externally, but to each one of the people that make up the group of public companies. Each and every one of us are essential pieces in this puzzle formed by the public business sector of Navarra.

What we do

The Public Business Corporation of Navarra is probably the least known of the public companies of the Government of Navarra; something logical, on the other hand, because of our own functions.


CPEN's commitment with society is not only to use public resources in an effective and efficient manner, but also to get a balanced and sustainable public business sector which may serve as an element of transfer of values, which promotes the economic development of the Regional Community and enables the implementation of the policies of the various departments of the Government of Navarra.


Today CPEN is composed of 11 professionals who provide advisory services to the other public companies and the Government of Navarra -where so required-, in 5 major areas: procurement, investment and recruitment; communication; financial; legal and human resources.


Our main roles include the coordination of the operation and activities of public companies, according to criteria of efficiency, effectiveness and value creation, as well as designing guidelines and following up their implementation in the areas covered by the Corporation (see budgeting, strategic plans, funding structures, homogenisation, and communication policies, among other.). To do this, over time, procedures have been established to promote the in-depth knowledge of the management and the financial situation of the companies through reporting, budgets, etc.


Not less important is the responsibility assigned to CPEN to promote strategic projects that work for the benefit and in the development of the public business sector as a whole (such as Equality plans of public companies, Code of ethics and behaviour or processes for internalising or outsourcing management - as was the case of the Navarra Circuit, for example).


In short, CPEN creates value for the Government of Navarra through the implementation of the mandated functions...


  • improving the management of Public assets
  • enabling a strategic corporate implementation for the public business sector
  • implementing homogeneous policies, common practices, and procedures for the improvement of management
  • providing a common vision and enabling the transfer of ideas and good practices between companies
  • reducing operating costs
  • helping in the implementation of complex projects
  • enabling a consolidated financial and economic view that facilitates decision-making
  • being the single point that brings together all the information of public companies for the Government of Navarra
  • reducing the management bodies
  • and allowing for the participation of the Parliament in the management of the public business sector through its participation in the Board of Directors

CPEN is committed to the continuous improvement of the public business sector and to do this we will continue to work each day, confident of having a team whose good work, involvement and professionalism form the foundation of our present and future success, shared with each and every one of the public companies integrated in the corporation and their respective workforces.
